I swear I'm not depressed, or at least I don't think I am. I've just been thinking a lot about my life and where I want to be in five, ten, even fifty years and it makes me feel a little scared.
It's my Erikson psycho social crisis, which I like a little bit better because I don't have to convince you that I'm not depressed. My scheduled identity crisis. My yearly checkup. First it was trust and mistrust and now this.
I'm also scared because I see all these different paths I can take, but I'm not sure where any of them go. And I see all these things I can do and all these things I'm good at, but I don't know if I'm going to enjoy these things twenty years from now.
Sometimes I wish my parents would make the choice for me, because not knowing what I'm going to do with myself is the worst part. Part of me wants to pay a physic to ask what I'll be when I grow up, but the other part of me is saying you are a grown up, and that scares me too.
I don't see this getting any better before graduation either, I'm sure students getting ready to walk out with their degree are feeling the exact same way.
I really feel sorry for us.
Are you a millennial feeling the same way about choosing a career path? Are you a real life grown up and have some advise for us? Was this post overly pessimistic? (yes) Comment below.
