Ask Jigsaw: I feel so lost right now
Hi, I would really like some advice. I just feel so lost right now. I have very little motivation for studying and am so confused about my future and what course to do in college. It feels like something is missing in my life but I’m not sure what it is. To be honest I feel like there is something missing in my life and something wrong with me (health wise). What do I do?
Things sound really tough for you at the moment. It can be hard to find the motivation to study when you are unsure what it is leading to. It can also feel overwhelming thinking about the future and feeling pressure to make choices about college right now.
Feeling under pressure
Although you may feel under pressure to make decisions about college, many people change their mind, their course and their career at different points in their life. Once you make a choice, if it turns out to be the wrong one for you, trust yourself that you can find a way to deal with it. It’s easy to get caught up in feeling stressed about the decisions we make, however, it is unlikely to make the outcome any different.
