“Just because I don’t know what the future holds for me in college, doesn’t mean I need to be scared.”

BEING Young & Twenty means uncertainty.

We’re still discovering ourselves.

We’re trying to find our identity.

I never thought I’d be scared – but I am.

I’m worried about how I’ll do in college and what I’ll do after.

I’m worried about my finances. I’m worried if I’ll make my family proud.

I’m starting to realize that just because I don’t know what the future holds for me, doesn’t mean I need to be scared.

Yes, I don’t know what I’m doing in the next month, or what classes I’m taking this fall, but that’s okay. It’s okay to be uncertain. It should make us excited.

Excited to see what the future is going to hold.

I like to think that uncertainty means new discoveries.
