Iíve never been a big fan of change. A lot of people share my feelings. There have been changes in life that have stopped me in my tracks and made me want to run home and hide under my blankets and never come out. However, over the last couple of weeks, Iíve come to find that some changes make all the difference in life.
Iíve always been the type of person who enjoys a routine. Each day is laid out and I know almost exactly what I am going to do. Big changes in life always had the ability to scare me and leave me with that queasy, anxious feeling in my stomach.
When I made the leap from high school to college, I was terrified. Leaving home for the first time, living on my own, being responsible for my own bills and having to make new friends made me feel more anxious about going to college than excited. It took months before I became comfortable with the setting and didnít want to run home every chance I could get.
