I’ve never been one to do something out of my comfort zone. That being said continuing school was always part of the plan. I took around a 2-3 year break Involuntarily after getting my first degree in psychology. I made a big decision and enrolled in a university outside of my town. This was really big as I’ve done anything this big, and even more i decided to live in the dorms so I wouldn’t be commuting.
I love my family but I felt like I didn’t have an identity. I spoke to my therapist before moving out here. Yes a therapist. Although it was a new thing as I had a couple of anxiety attacks. I had originally thought it might have been a heart attack or something. It’s funny now that I think about it I’m a psychology major and didn’t know I was having an anxiety attack.
So two months in and I feel like I have made a good decision. I’ve made some great friends.I still don’t know who I am yet but I feel like I find a little piece of me everyday.
