Anonymous asked: I'm 20 & I feel like I've lost so much time on things that I wanted to be doing but couldn't due to my bordering on extreme social anxiety for about 4 years & finally pulling myself out of it, I feel like I've fallen very far behind on everything, I was supposed to be on my own, steady job, boyfriend & possibly school by now. I don't know what to do now. No job, no qualifications or anything. I've hit a wall & I can't figure out how to break through it or go over it. Any ideas??
You need to completely abandon the ‘I should have’ mindset. Life never goes as planned. There is no should-have path. You just need to work with what you have now. You’re here. The past is gone. Let it go 100%. Figure out the next step. Find out what you want, even if it’s a baby step. One day at a time toward the future you want.
