I think there’s truth in the fact that you need to figure things out for yourself. There may be a larger truth that it’s okay to accept some help along the way. I’m not claiming to be a professional advice-giver or self-help guru, but what perspective about recent post-grad life is more pertinent than one from someone who’s experiencing recent post-grad life?
Adults are constantly reminding me, “This is the next phase of your life. You have so much ahead of you.” And I’m over here like, “STOP LYING.” This adjustment is undoubtedly tricky, but there’s a reason Twitter accounts like Post-Grad Problems have hundreds of thousands of followers – tons of people everywhere are going through the same thing, and they’re looking to relate with others, whether that’s sharing a story from the good ol’ college days (aka six months ago) or posing a question you’re hoping everyone else is wondering (can I get away with using my student discount here?).
That’s why I say Mindfire is just as much yours as it is mine. Without comments or reaction to the stuff I write, I’d be like a bartender only pouring drinks for myself. And nobody likes that bartender.
