Yes.... yes I do fear the future. I fear it so much that I'm scared to graduate. At times I regret decisions I've made to try and get away from my parents, because I realize that if I'm not with them then my life will be completely different... I don't think its irrational or "just the stress talking", I believe its a legitimate fear that everyone, even those people with no mental illnesses have. It's one of our problems as humans that we are always trying to figure out what's next, and the fact that we don't know irritates us and makes us feel helpless and vulnerable. It's almost as bad as trying to figure out our purpose in life... which is much harder to discern than figuring out what may happen to you in the future, near or far.
