Does all of the crap that it seems like it takes to be an "adult" seem overwhelming an even a bit terrifying?
Is there a little voice that keeps telling you to take the "easy" way out or put things off?
Do you ever feel like you are just faking it and that someone is going to bust you for it soon?
Is it getting harder to make friends the older you get?
Is Anxiety the one driving your car? Do worries, fears, or doubts keep you stuck and unable to make decisions or move forward?
