I don't know a lot of the times, I feel like I'm pitying myself for being in a situation like this and then I tell myself to stop whining. I hate that I do that! Like, I see all my friends and peers that are going to school, working, going out whenever they want and although that doesn't particularly bother me, I sometimes get jealous and feel like I'm not advancing or living this independent lifestyle that I've dreamt about. And then, I tell myself how much "worse" it could be or that I'm overreacting. I don't know, maybe I am but I also don't want to invalidate my feelings. Anyone else know what I mean? Does this sound completely dumb? Let me know!
