Hi there. So I've been relieved to have gotten through my final degree exams. Now I'm feeling really down. My lecturers took the whole class out for pints last night. Ever since we said our official goodbyes, I've been feeling so down. I really loved my lecturers and friends I made (despite consistent moaning about assignments and said lecturers that gave assignments...) There were the most amazing and admirable I've ever met so far in my life.
The past 6 months have probably been the best ones of my life for a long time. I hated my teenage years. I felt so self-conscious (after getting hassle from school, my Dad), depressed, repressed my sexuality and absolutely hated myself. Now, I feel I'm finally getting my life on track and I hope that the future (whatever happens jobwise) will continue to make me feel better in myself. Of course, I'm happy I now have the mental space to sort out my life. But, four yearsof a degree was a long time and a lot of personal journeys happened. /rant
Finishing college is always a big anti-climax for everyone - whether they have depression/anxiety or none at all. There's the feeling of "well, what now?"
You would do well to set your self a new goal to work on over the Summer - in addition to the tough task of looking for a job.
A short to medium-term project to work on in the coming months might help to reduce the feeling of anti-climax.
