A Bunch of 20 Year Olds share their Worst Anxiety in Life Presently!

For any average student, the last year of college is filled with nervous breakdowns & full of bouts of anxiety & uncertainty. The feelings of stark uncertainty & doubts are thoroughly overwhelming for a person undergoing them.

We asked a bunch of 20 Year Old’s from different colleges about their worst anxiety in life presently. All of them are in the last year of their graduation.


Here are some of their responses verbatim :

You have to start becoming responsible for your existence and not mess it up. That’s a huge cause of my anxiety because I always had the ‘perfect me at the age of 20’ idea. 
»
Not having a plan & remaining clueless till graduation. Basically, being clueless & not doing anything with my time & life.
»
It’s about making the correct choices in life. Be it from choosing the correct career path to buying something expensive from your savings. At this point I’m learning that you have to make a mental checklist for yourself, because no one else will do these things for you.
»
Seeing people and friends with big ambitions and goals in life and realising I don’t have any. 
»
I have no idea where I’ll end up at in the next year. Like I literally could be anywhere, pursuing Master’s or working or perhaps (& most probably), unemployed. It’s so uncertain right now. It feels really scary thinking that anything could happen & I’m sitting here having no concrete plan & idea.
»
Time is moving so fast. And I’m not ready to grow up yet. 
»
Not being able to meet my set and valued goals that I aspire for myself in context of studies and establishing a good career in my desired field, is my worst anxiety at this point of life, being a 20 year old student in my last year of college.
»
Losing my loved ones (family and friends) and not being able to meet their expectations is my greatest anxiety.
»
Making sure you’re ready for the future. It’s really very unpredictable out there. It’s not like school where after class 1, you’ll have class 2 & where you have everything handed to you together. So, being prepared for things you don’t know that can hit you in the face, well it’s fun, but not so fun.
»
I have no idea what to do. Coaching, entrance, placements! Postgrad or job!? Worst, as of now, both of them seem impossible.
»
Right now, I want to satisfy both myself and my parents. That becomes a huge deal of stress because it’s not always that parents will understand or that you will always have a consensual option.
»
CAT!
»
Growing up, I had such big dreams. All those seem so distant now, I don’t see anything materialising in my favour. Reality is completely different from what I’d visualised.
»
IDK where I’m going what do I want
»
20 sounds much more adult than 19! But I’m not ready to adult yet. I don’t even remember turning 15, I’ve no idea how I reached here.

Each one resonates so well literally!

And to all the 20 year old kids reading this, it’s okay, you’re not alone in this & everything you’ve been feeling is completely valid & justified.
