I Wasted Too Much Time On Nothing

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 379 People

    I feel so dismayed ..

    .. I feel like I've wasted my time spending the past 2 years working on a degree in a field that I have no confidence in pursuing for a career. I feel lost .... I graduate in May and I feel defeated.... I'm so afraid to put myself out there and find a good job

    Time Keeps Moving - Whether You Do Or You Dont

    I think the problem for me is I focus way too much on time, and not enough on what I am doing with the time. It is like I sit silently frozen, and I watch the time continue to pass and I know its passing and I know I need to move, but for some reason, I cant. All I can do is...
