There's no worse feeling than convincing yourself of the worst case scenario.

He's not going to call you back, you'll never see her again, you're not going to get better, you might as well give up on him/her/it/yourself.

That's dangerous headspace to get into.

I used to like to think that way, so that life would (almost) always turn out better than I had expected.  But that has since lead me to worry about everything under the sun for no good reason.

I don't want to think like that anymore.  I want alone time to be happy not depressing.  I want to practice what I preach an not default to worst-case-scenario.

I'm going to try my hand at this therapy thing again, starting this week.  It's terrifying, but I know it can only do me good.

I'm not going to get into that dark headspace with this.  I'm going to look forward to it and open myself up to letting go of my stubbornness and embracing what I'm about to do.

That's what you're supposed to do when you're 20 living in New York, right?

Meet The Author

I'm Madysen, born and raised in Nebraska but now living out my dreams in New York City. I moved here to go to Columbia, but living in New York has become so much more to me. This blog is a space where I can share my experiences of reconciling my midwestern upbringing with the life I live in the city. But even bigger than that, this blog serves as a space where I can try to understand where I fit into the larger social world, where I want to go in life, and how I want to go about pursuing all of these endeavors.
