You're not alone...


Ever worry about something in the middle of the night (or day); tossing and turning and struggling to find the answer to a problem? Like: finding a new job, not being good enough or worthy, completing some complex process at work, worrying about a friendship gone bad, finishing homework that’s due tomorrow, understanding a complicated and confusing assignment, not being as good as your or others expect, having disagreements with friends or family, finding answers to personal problems… and so many more. Here’s what I do when this happens to me: I get up, calm and quiet the struggle in my head, write the problem down on a sheet of paper and edit it until it makes sense, think about who I can talk to and what I would say to them, drink a glass of water, and then go back to bed. Stop struggling with the struggle and don’t think you’re alone: while most everyone has something they’re worried about, there are  supervisors, counselors, mentors, family, friends, and other professionals to talk to who can help you think these kinds of things through. Don’t give into worry and doubt on your way to doing great things today.
