I think it’s awesome that your considering going back to school! We are about the same age and I can def relate to the overwhelmed all over the place thinking, it is easy to get carried away with what we can’t control. I also started college right after high school, then quit and in the last couple years just recently went back. I struggled a lot with feeling like I was old and uncomfortable about going back after all my friends had already graduated. I think the biggest thing that helps me is to remember that the time is going to go by no matter what I decide to.(might not make sense in text but whether you take the classes or not life won’t stop it keeps going so start again and don’t look back!)

readybeeone2three : it makes perfect sense! I totally understand what you’re saying and feel the same way. Like I’m “too old” even though I know I’m not and many people go back to school much later in life. I think it’s just the added stress of knowing I have to work full time & have a house to take care of, bills to pay and another person to consider. Much different than when I was living with my parents, rent free and could work part time. Congrats on going back to school!! What are you studying?

danibee5683 : Thanks! Psychology..It’s a totally different experience being a little bit older but I think I’m getting the hang of it lol. I’m not sure if you are in the US or not but have you looked into financial aid? One good thing about hitting 25 is getting to use your own tax info instead of your oarents on all the financial aid paperwork!

readybeeone2three : That’s awesome, girl! Psychology/social work is actually a field I’ve been considering! Yes, I am in the US and will have to look into the different Financial Aid options now that I am older. It can be so overwhelming but I really need to look into grants I may be eligible for as well! <3

I particularly liked:
Your Erronous Zones (By Wayne Dyer) – Great advice on forgiving yourself for your mistakes or bad decisions. This book isn’t generally famous but I felt the advice in it was top-notch for me who was self-shaming a lot.
5 Second Rule (By Mel Robbins) – Helps you to force yourself to start doing things to create positive change in your life.
The Secret (By Rhonda Byrne) – General self-motivator about believing things are already happening in your life as you would like them to happen. Universe is sending signals 24/7 to make things come true for you that you are thinking about.
Why men love bitches | Why men marry bitches (By Sherry Argov) – This was a good read not so much on men-mentality because not all men are created equal, but instead due to its strong mention of the importance and value of focusing on your needs and putting yourself at number one.
