I am completely overwhelmed, and I knew it was coming.
Even though I knew, and signed up for it, doesn’t mean I feel prepared—as if” prepared” meant I could handle it with suave sophistication. The moment of impact still jars even if you know it’s coming. You can still be overwhelmed even if you signed up for the jump. I think there are a lot of things in life that are too much or too overwhelming but we have to do them, on whatever level—financial, familiar, educational. So you do them anyway. And you know it will be too much. You might even cry and whine a little. But that doesn’t mean it was a wrong choice or not worth it.
Often the things worth the most, take the most courage and the most risk and the most out of you. A lot of what makes them worth the most is that you had to give most of yourself to get them.
