Graduating - February 7th 2016, 04:49 AM

I'm putting this here because in a way it's grieving. In May I'm going to graduate and I guess it sorta hit me that I'm moving to another state after. And in one swift motion I'm going to lose my family, my friends, my boyfriend, my home, and my animals. It's crippling. It truly is. I won't see them again until they are much older and I won't be apart of their lives to see them, and some I will never see again. Idk how I can do this


If it is meant to be, it will be.

I can definitely see why you find this upsetting because it's a big change in your life. I think you should try to make the most of the time you have left with your friends, family, and animals. Maybe you can schedule outings or make sure you spend a little bit of quality time with everyone in your life before you have to leave.

Do keep in contact with everyone after you leave as well. It might help to bring pictures, stuffed animals, or any other objects that serve as a reminder of your home. Looking at those things when you're struggling and you miss everyone can be helpful. Maybe you can get a small calendar or a planner and schedule phone calls or times to Skype so you can still keep in touch with everyone.

Try to remember that while you are leaving things behind, you're taking a step forward and it will be exciting and different. You'll have a chance to do different things, learn different things. You're taking another step in your life.
