Im lost

Posted , 5 users are following.

I dont even know where to start. Im away from home, and all I can think of its being at home. I come from classes and my anxiety startes to kick in. I know im not the best student, but I really am trying. But everything I do, is wrong. I feel like im going to fail and no be able to make my parents proud. I need a new beggining. I wish I had a restart button, but I dont. I cry, but that doesnt take me nowhere. Im going to fail out of college. Im scared. I try so hard and nothing seems to work. Here I am trying to find answers on where everything went down.

    Don't be so hard on yourself.

    Anxiety comes with self doubt. But you've got to try and think past it.

    Home is obviously your comfort zone.

    Try to make your living space as similar to your home space as possible.

    As for worry of failing, my mother always said to me " as long as you know you tried your best that is all I ask for "

    I'm sure you're just pressuring yourself too much. Anxiety is hard to deal with even without the added pressure to achieve. Just try to stay positive. Have you spoke to your parents or anyone about how you feel? Maybe if you talk to your parents it may give you some reassurence.

    Good luck with everything. Just take a deep breath and breathe!

    You'll do fine.

    Positive thinking promotes positive outcome(:

    Hello Holly. I'm in college too and going through the same thing. I've always had anxiety but it's only really started to impact my life this year for some reason. I actually went home last week for a short day (about 10 days) and it was pretty wonderful. I still had some anxiety, but it was low and I felt overall great being home. Now I'm back and the first two or three days were okay, and then two days ago it all started again. Heart beating fast, wanting to sleep all the time, nervous about going out, missing work, negative thinking, a weird fear of losing control. The only thing that calms me down is to call my family every day for at least an hour, usually more. I'm telling you this so that you know you're not alone. These feelings can be terrible and I'm still trying to deal with them. But please know you're not the only one. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts xxx
