how am i sustaining anxiety while adulting? how am i adapting to change while growing up? how am i adapting to the reality of the REAL world? honestly i take things day by day. i moved out of my parents house a year ago with no money saved, because i thought i was ready to be on my own, & no real guidance. once i was on my own i was like “okay now what” i was bored & still ended up staying at my parents house most nights as if i didn’t have my own address. i wasn’t ready to be alone. i moved to a new apartment this year & i’m finally capable of completely being alone without having to stay at my parents house. now my mom is constantly calling asking me to come stay the night LOL. i had major fear of being 100% alone, i had no sense of security & was paranoid of every little noise in my new environment. i coped my anxiety by finding things to do that i liked while at home. for instance, sewing & reading. i also became very in tune with myself recently & that has helped me A LOT. my mind has been shaped around the universe to see things differently & to be more accepting & open. sometimes being alone is needed & there is nothing to be afraid of. plus, when i need help with something my parents are always a call/drive away.
