I'm 19 years old and the thought of turning 20 kind of scares me. What can I do to deal with this? - November 14th 2017, 08:26 PM

I'm currently 19 years old and honestly, the thought of being 20 is kind of making me feel anxious. I mean then, I won't be a teenager anymore and as a result, I feel like my youth is kind of over and I won't be able to have certain privileges of being associated with youth. I can't stop worrying about turning 20 and I fear as it gets closer, I will start counting the days and won't be able to enjoy being a teen. How can I deal with this and stop like counting down the days?

I think it can help to remember that biological age doesn't necessarily mean you have to suddenly grow up and lose all the 'privileges' of being younger. You may be out of the 'teen' years, but you are still young and can carry on doing what you enjoy.
