adulting into progress
Transitioning into adulthood is challenging. For most of your life, you followed a specific blueprint. As you enter a new season in your life, you recognize that everything you expected is not what you thought.
The fantasy of obtaining your own place, attending college, new career, romantic relationships, and friendships can experience new challenges.
Adulting has a new responsibility. But it does not have to be a heavy burden. Learn to celebrate the choices you can make by defining your life in your terms. Progressing in adulthood often has feeling lost, inadequate, exhausted, guilty, and shameful for who they are and where they are in their lives.
Don't get caught up on where you are supposed to be or where you aren't at. Therapy can help you evaluate your choices and clarify the goals that you have for your life.
