I'm not really feeling too happy. I'm leaving away for school in late august. I'm really happy to get away from this town for a bit, and to get out of my house. But im REALLY gonna miss people, esp. my boyfriend. I miss him all the time and I'm scared that our relationship will be strained or that he won't even really miss me that much.

I'm afraid of leaving my work and not having money. I'm also really afraid taht I'll fail.
I'm so excited to start but now that summer...geez...it's already JULY almost...is almost over I want to make the most of it. I'm gonna miss him soooooo much.

I hate feeling depressed about it, but I'm really sad to leave now...

Hi Taryn,

It's no wonder you've got such mixed emotions.....you've got a great opportunity waiting for you, but that means leaving some people you love behind, for a while, and leaving the security of your work as well. I'd venture a guess that anyone in your shoes would feel the same way! I really believe if your relationship with your boyfriend is meant to be, it will survive this separation period while you're at school. How far away is your school from your home town? Are periodic visits in the cards for you? If so, that might help you to cope with some of your sad feelings. Please try to make the most of your summer, as you've said you want to.....you've probably seen it written on this forum before, but all we really have right now is the present moment, and I would love to see you have some happiness over the next couple of months without the sadness and 'what ifs' hanging over your head. It's natural that you would feel this way.....just try, if you can, to keep those thoughts from ruining the time you have before you leave. School is really important, and I don't think you'll regret investing in yourself and your future by pursuing this goal.

I also want to add, that when you go to a new school, you have many oppertunities to make new friends. I hope that this happens for you.

And as Raniah said, school is really important. So study, study, and study more. You will do great, I am sure of this.

This is a new adventure for you and I hope that it is a positive one. Keep trying, you will do great!

Hugs, Karen

taryn, from someone with a stuffed up upbringing, and mispent youth, and a mature age student, i too recommend you get stuck into the books!! new opportunities await, new experiences, new people, new environment, new. see the positives, and study!! real hard. best wishes, jamie, ps, understand the sadness. no reward without risk.
