Fear for the Future

It’s a scary feeling not knowing what you’ll be doing this time next year. Will I be working a full-time job? Will I be completing my master’s degree? Where will I be living? These are the types of questions haunting me. As of right now, I have no idea what my life will be like next year.

I am excited to move away for school, but am also scared that I might not even get into any of the programs I have applied to. If I do get in where will I live? Who will I live with? Which program will I choose? Will I even get to choose or will I only get accepted into one?

And even worse, what if I don’t get in anywhere… Will I be able to get a job in my field? What if I can’t get a job at all? How will it look to have a gap on my resume? Will I ever go back to school if I take some time off?

Waiting to hear if you got into any of the programs you’ve applied for is terrifying and stressful. So I’m trying my best not to think about it too much and I suggest the same for anyone in the same situation. Worry about it when you need to. Focus on the present, don’t stress about the future.

  1. Thank you for sharing. I feel a fear of the future for me is always present, but I also tend to find a bit of excitement in the anticipation for the positive things in the future. Like the progress I have made and what that means. And how my accomplishments have put me on the path I want to be on. So when I focus on those, it usually helps with the fear I feel.
