no one ever tells you how terrible you’ll feel after graduating college…
i thought i was going to feel all accomplished and like i had actually done something with my life. that has definitely not been the case. i haven’t been able to find a job (like so many of my fellow graduates) and i feel pretty useless. my parents think that since i got a degree i should be able to be like the ceo of some company or basically run the world. they don’t understand how hard it is to get a job without any experience right now. on top of that, you don’t realize how lonely it is not being in school. i spent most of my life with my friends. in and out of school, it was pretty much my constant support. i never could have gotten through school without my friends. but after graduation, i didn’t realize how little time i would actually get to spend with my friends anymore. it’s definitely taking a toll. i am so stressed out. i’ve been having panic attacks and constantly struggle to get a breath in. it’s just so frustrating trying to get through this lonely time while feeling like i have no one to go to anymore. i feel like no one cares about me. i’m not even really sure why i’m posting this. i guess i just needed to vent about how i really feel about everything since i haven’t had the opportunity. i just really want to know i’m going to be okay. at this point, i’m really not sure. life just seems impossible and i don’t feel strong enough to be successful and happy like i want to be.
