Introduction: Feeling The Pressure?
Entering into “adulthood” may seem impossible with the new responsibilities, tasks, and rules that society asks you to follow, but there is more to being an adult than what other people try to label it as. Becoming an adult means maturing into the person that you have always dreamt of being. Suddenly you need to prioritize things in your life that you have never had to focus on before and while that may feel overwhelming it can also lead to amazing growth in your life.
Adulthood Doesn’t Have To Feel Scary
There are many resources that you can reach out to if you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, such as seeking a therapist who understands your growing pains. Therapy isn’t just for people who are anxious or depressed, but rather it’s a space to explore your emotions and experiences on a deeper level than you would be able to on a day-to-day basis. Therapy for young adults means having someone to guide you through all of the things that feel daunting about adulthood and provide you with tools to help you through the obstacles you may face. Therapy could help you with:
- Unexpected struggles such as loss or grief
- Transitioning into living an independent lifestyle
- Making lasting relationships with your family and friends
- Providing healthy boundary setting practices for all areas of life
- Finding self-worth through your experiences and not progress
You’re Still Growing
Navigating your new life can feel like you’ve been given this ultimate task that you only have one chance at when in reality, your life’s what you make it. Making mistakes and running into obstacles are bound to happen in your newly acquired adulthood, but what is important is how you choose to handle these situations. If you are not providing a solid foundation of healing and growth for your mental, emotional and physical well-being then transitioning into adulthood will likely feel strained and exhausting for you. You must be nurturing your mind, body, and soul on all levels to truly experience the joy that comes with your newfound freedom. You deserve to have the right footing for your new journey so you can blossom in all the right ways. Allow yourself to learn how to be vulnerable while still feeling fulfilled through therapy.
