You’ve spent your whole life preparing to be an adult. There’s a lot of pressure to be special, do something amazing, BE someone amazing. Get your degree and a fabulous career. Move out on your own. Travel. Find a relationship. Start a family. All of these things are on your “to do” list but sometimes you just want to be a carefree kid again. You wonder what others think about you and whether you are measuring up to what everyone expects from you, to what YOU expect from yourself. There’s just so much pressure so you either shift into overdrive trying to make everybody happy or you totally shut down and stop caring.
Is this what being an “adult” is like? Is this how I am supposed to feel? Now what?
Your first decade of adulthood is loaded with transitions. And somehow amidst these new relationships and experiences, you’re also supposed to answer the question: “Who am I?”. Sometimes you aren’t sure if your decisions are taking you in the right direction. You might even know you aren’t heading in the right direction but aren’t sure how to change course. All of these changes and decisions can trigger anxiety, depression, and feelings of being stuck or overwhelmed.
Don’t you wish there was a GPS for your life?

It starts by gaining a better understanding of yourself and learning the tools that you need to create a sense of balance and wellbeing.
