…but there will also be worse days. This has been really important for me to remember lately. Things are most certainly not great for me right now.
I lost my job, we put our family dog down, I moved out of my own apartment and moved back to my hometown into my mom’s townhouse with her. I haven’t been able to get through to unemployment to get some money flowing into my bank account. Quite frankly, my morale has been low. And sometimes I just need to vent about it…I think everyone deserves the right to vent about their troubles right now. At the age of 22, fresh out of college and 8 months into my career, I am completely lost. I have truly never not had something going on in my life. I took this semester of my grad program off because I figured I would need a break after tax season…little did I know how much of a break I would have. I’m not working, not going to school, which is just a foreign concept to me.
So many people have it worse than me right now. I’m so lucky that I have a home to live in when things get tough for me, but guys…just because people have it worse does not make your troubles and your feelings invalid. As I’ve said in another serious post, let yourself feel all the feelings. Be sad, be bored, be relaxed. Hell, sometimes I truly don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. But I do, usually my mom tells me I need to be productive which provokes me getting annoyed, but I honestly need the push sometimes. In times like this, covid-19, unemployment, relocation, etc, use your support system. Check in on your friends, family, and don’t be afraid to talk about your problems to them. Usually they will make you feel better. So guys, it’s okay to be uncomfortable right now, or at any point in your life. Take time to not know what the heck you’re doing with your life, because you’ll look back someday and realize it was times like this that shaped you into the person you are.
I know there wasn’t really advice in this post, I’m not really trying to do so. For everyone feeling uncomfortable and lost, I’m with you and I’m here for you…let’s be lost together!
Until next time……xoxo, Hannah
