I have been feeling so completely and utterly overwhelmed with college and job and general life things. I’m taking a million classes in order to graduate in a few months and all upper division classes that include a to do list that is horrifying to look at.. My job is very stressful and if I don’t do a good job with my current job, I won’t be able to get my dream job next year. My family is very unsupportive of me being engaged so young (I’m 24 -__-) and I’ve really felt quite a bit of pressure from them lately that makes me feel just terrible almost all the time. (On the bright side, they can’t make a single negative comment about my Fiance because they can’t even think of one! He’s my bright spot right now). Life has felt so awful and overwhelming lately with all this stress and feeling so overwhelmed with pages and pages of homework. Also trying to figure out my living situation next year as I will have to move if I get my dream job. I’m also quite college poor right now as I have my final tuition payments to make. Sigh.. On top of everything, I won’t be able to see my Fiance for a few weeks.
But… As I was watching a very depressing movie about war and thinking ‘Things could be worse.’ I heard that a friend of a family member was brutally attacked and abused.. And I felt so terrible and awful for her that I thought “What the hell is your problem? You’re healthy! Safe! And you have a roof over your head! Do not complain about your minor stresses when there are so many worse things to worry about you selfish twit!!!! Other people have REAL problems!’
And I promptly stopped feeling bad for myself… I thought I should share.. Someone out there is always having a worse day than you so remember that and keep your chin up, Bees!
