I have a problem that probably most people have. Especially post grads. A bad case of being "Future Obsessed".
What is future obsessed you might say? Most of the time I am pretty much thinking about the future. What job am I going to have? Will I be happy doing said job? Is my boyfriend going to graduate soon? Will he find a good job? Will I be able to save to buy a new car? Will I be able to move out of my parent's house? Who will I live with? Etc. Etc.
Now let me hit myself in the head. It is definitely good to have the future in mind. If you didn't think about your future, you wouldn't be motivated to do anything for yourself or think about how you'd like your life to turn out. But thinking too much and dare I say, worrying so much about it is not healthy.
I have to sit back sometimes and think, I'm 21. I do need to find a way to make money and save up for things. I need to find out what I want to do with my life. But I really do not need to worry about it so much right now. I don't need to worry so much about what my boyfriend is doing. I love him and I want him to do well, but he should be worrying about himself.
So here I am letting this go and feel free to tell me what's up if I start obsessing about the future again. Anyone else have problems thinking too much about the future?
