If leaving your parents for the first time is scary, that’s good. Fear, confusion, and pain can be healthy signs that you’re on the right track. Stay with it. You begin to change, and it gets better.
And if you’ve gradated from Fredonia and not coming back this weekend causes you pain, that’s good too. The pain is a signal that it’s time to change again.
Going further into the pain is a better bet than running home to mom and dad or running back to Fred Fest.
