Day 4 of 31 : What Are You Afraid Of
- Moving away from family/friends
After graduation, I plan on moving out of my parents’ house and finding a place of my own. This is the transition into adulthood that I knew would eventually come. It is a whole new part of life that is exciting but also daunting. It is the combination between the fear of not knowing what will happen in the next few years and not being surrounded by the people I love.
This fear is hard to explain. It’s a pattern of events that always ends the same way. I set my expectations too high, I end up disappointed after something doesn’t turn out how I planned, and then I realize how unrealistic my expectations were. It feels silly that I do this to myself but it’s all because of my optimistic mindset. I never hold my disappointment against anyone but myself. This leads me to worry that others have high expectations for me and I’ll end up disappointing them. The last thing I would want to do is let someone down. It is a balance that I need to work on.
What is something you’re afraid of?
