When I Figure it Out, I’ll Let You Know
Once a person hits about 15 years old the questions start to pour in about what’s coming next in theirÂ life from family friends and acquaintances, and they never really stop.
When you’re in high school, everyoneÂ wants to know what colleges are being looked into.
Now that I’m 22, people keep asking me what I’m doing with my life. Â It’s hard enough balancing everything going on, at the same time gettingÂ bombarded with the same questions from friends is very stressful and a bit irritating (if I do say so myself). Â I recently talked to my Mom about this exact subject.Â Â I told her that I just wanted to tell people “well, when I figure it out, I’ll let you know.” (Hence, the title)! Â I wantÂ to let everyone know who is going through this kind of questoning that it’s not just them who go through this, everyone actually does!
AÂ bit of background on my life, I am still currently in Junior College. Â I was a bit side-tracked my first two years because that was the year(s) I was diagnosed with my anxiety and depression and that took precedence over my school work at the time. Â Because of the fact that I’m still in school, I get very judgmental looks that I haven’t ( as some people would say) “got my act together.” Â My parents (thankfully) never have pressured me. Â They just wanted to make sure that my health was under control–but, to the outsiders, the pressure it definitely on. Â My health is managedÂ and I have a set plan, but the questions still come.
I no longerÂ feel the need or feel stressed about tellingÂ people what I am going to do with the next phase in my life, because it’s really only my business.
The moral of this semi-rant:
Never let anyone make you feel like you’re not good enough because of the choices you’ve made in your life. Â How and what to choose to do is up to me!
Hope you all have a lovely day! xx
