I Feel Like I'm Stuck In A

Hey everyone.My name is Kyle.Recently i have started feeling like i'm getting nowhere.Here's my reason's why.......

I know what i want to do but i can't get into it because it took me a while to figure out (psychology and all the courses are closed)
Also i don't have a job because i was laid off so i can't do an open university course.

I have all these ideas i want to follow but noone to believe in them (i want to start a group for drug users with a difference to help them overcome addiction ect)

I have a son and his mum barely cares about him.We seperated a while back but now her house in in a state constantly and social are threatening to take him and she want's me to take him.

I feel depressed because i'm not supporting myself or my son.

I regret not being able to attend school in the year of my prelims/exams.

Basically it all culminated together plus at the moment apart from my son my life seems empty.I want to get out this rut and i keep trying to come up with a plan but it seems like i have no chance to reach my dream of getting a batchelors degree in psychology.

Am i being unrealistic or stupid focusing on this or is it possible.I am only 19 is it realistic?

i want to start a group to help people overcome addiction too. anyways, good luck with everything. be thankful you're 19 and still have time to accomplish a lot of things. i hate to say this, but psychology is bullshit, although a degree is helpful if you want to go into the helping profession. sometimes i wished i had majored in psychology so i could at least put it on a resume.

Your first priority is to yourself. Your second is to your children. Your third is to your happiness.

If a mountain seems too big to climb stop standing at the bottom looking at the top. Look down at your feet. Take a few steps.

You don't have to figure it all out right now. Take care of you and your son. Make small steps towards your degree. So you can't get the psych course- take a college writting course or a math one- something that you will need later that you can get out of the way. Apply for jobs. Take care of your son. Take care of yourself.

Rome wasn't built in a day and neither is your life. Just take a few small steps in the right direction. You will get to the top of the mountain in your own time. Maybe you end up at the top of a different mountain. You never know until you start moving.
