You’re doing a great job so far, keep going I know you can do it!!! I’m finishing my undergraduate now and I’m applying for jobs (something that is totally outside my comfort zone) so I know how overwhelming this all may seem.
Even when you’re feeling really insecure and doubtful, just remember to keep putting one foot in front of the other, do the best you can do in that particular moment, and focus on your goal. And remember to take good care of yourself (i.e. eat well, exercise,and get lots of sleep), its all too easy to give in to self doubt and insecurities when you’re tired and eating poorly.
It really helps me to write my goals up on a white board when I’m feeling stuck. It just keeps me focused to see them written down.
Best of Luck,
Anita: Thank you for your feedback! Yes I do believe he is somewhat of my security blanket. I don’t get along with my mother and my father died when I was a kid so I had very little support until I met him. We have been together for a lot of the biggest lessons in both our lives so its hard to leave that comfort zone. However, I would like to have a more equal and balanced relationship where we take care of each other instead of him always looking out for my needs. I know in order to become a more independent person, I have to “leave the nest” but it is a scary prospect for me. I don’t know who I am as a single person, I’ve always defined myself in relation to others in my family or in a relationship so this is a big step for me. I look forward to the challenge but I am also extremely anxious.
Alison:Thank you for your kind words! Its reassuring to know that I am headed in the right direction even though I sometimes don’t think I am. I am really dedicated to living a life on my own terms and I know if I make hard decisions now, I’ll be setting myself up for a better life down the road, its just hard to wrap my head around all that at my age! I always appreciate the support of the wonderful people like you guys here on Tiny Buddha, always willing to lend a little perspective. Thank you both!
Thank you all so much, your responses are so kind and helpful!
