There is only one word to really describe today: surreal. “Stressful,” “overwhelmed,” “conflicted,” and oddly “emotional” are other ways to encapsulate it, as well. It’s strange how we envision different scenarios playing out, and then when reality comes, it’s filled with all these things you didn’t expect. Part of being an adult is making decisions and living by them. We spend most of our childhoods relying on parents to decide everything for us, and then we are led out into the cold, harsh world to fend for ourselves. Even if in the end, you realize that you hate what that decision resulted in, at least you made the decision yourself and (hopefully) learned something from it.
