You are about to make some very important decisions about your life, perhaps for the first time. The choices you make as you launch into your future can feel like deciding on the fate of your entire life. It seems like a monumental undertaking- and it is. This stage in your life can be overwhelming and confusing, the questions never-ending and all-consuming.
- Where should I go to college?
- What will I major in?
- What if I don’t like my major?
- What am I going to do with my life?
You want to feel like you have your life figured out, or at least some aspects of your life. You may even have friends that seem to know exactly what they want to do, and you can’t understand why you don’t.
First of all, you don’t have to have it all figured out. It’s okay not to know everything right now, and, in fact, it is impossible to know everything. What you need to focus on is knowing yourself well and feeling confident in what you can offer the world.
