In a month I’m moving from a small town in Michigan to Washington DC. I’m moving with my best friend, and we have a great place picked out. I’m finally moving out of my parents and becoming an adult!
The thing is, I’m freaking terrified. Every second that flight gets closer, the more I think about all the things that are going to go wrong and how much I’m not prepared. I fake my excitement when I tell people I’m moving and lie about how confident I am about finding a job. I cry at the dumbest things and I’m constantly putting myself down.
This is a huge moment in my life and I know I need to enjoy my time with my friends and family now, but my fear makes me want to hide.
How can I get over my fear of leaving and just let myself enjoy this change, or at least relax a little? -Alice
