Prompt: What makes you blue?
I have started to feel very depressed about my life recently. I just graduated college and was hoping to find a fullfilling job that would allow me to do the things I want to do. I want a house, pets, and to be able to travel to different states and countries someday. I want to do those things with the person I think I will be with for life.
I just started my first full-time job as a contractor at a big company. It has felt defeating to be spending 40 hours a week doing the same repetitive tasks for a company that doesn’t value what I’m specifically doing. I hope to get into a better position quickly, not just for the pay raise, but to help with my mental health.
I’m 22 and honestly, very scared of what is to come.
Question: What is your advice for me?
