“Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm”

Quote

Do you ever just get so over whelmed by worries and just sorta shut down? It’s not the best feeling in the world, at all. Ever. And your mind doesn’t turn off so all you do is continue thinking about it, which really makes the situation even worse especially when the situation in question is now out of your control. And it really is amazing how fast your day can go from being exhilarating due to the end of the semester then make a complete 180 degree turn and have you wallowing in self-contemplation and worry about what you’ll do with the rest of your life if you don’t get into your major. For me, this happens entirely too often. And by that I mean at least once a day, I just become an immobile blob like the jellyfish from Finding Nemo. I need to stop worrying so much. It seems like such an easy thing to tell yourself but such a difficult thing to actually do. Gotta live in the moment and enjoy life as it is because after all, we only go around once. But I don’t use that as an excuse to do dumb things… alone anyway. I do dumb things because I like to be random and to keep life interesting. I’m sure I will learn to not worry so much about things that are out of my control but for now, all I can really do is learn how to lessen the effects of this anxiety.
