The Transition to Adulthood

Updated: Mar 1, 2023

Whether you’re in college, pursuing a Master’s degree or in your “first adult job,” navigating adulthood can be tricky. There are pressures of being in a relationship, confirming to societal norms, making X amount of money, not being happy with employment, feeling lost, the list goes on. Let me tell you, you are NOT alone. You have to remember this is the first time you are in the role of being an adult so this is new to you. It is human nature that when we try something for the first time (whether that’s food to meeting people to traveling to new places) we feel anxious. This is because we do not know what the future holds. Focus on what you can control within the transition and it will help ease some of the anxiety. Remind yourself this is new territory and you are learning. Like most things, the more you practice, get in a routine, it starts to become familiar and easy.
