Katie stresses out on future planning
Katie fights anxiety
by Josephine MunizEighth grade. It’s fun, and almost carefree, for most students. Well, it wasn’t so much fun for Katie Jones, now a Junior at McKinley High School. Katie explains how anxiety started building up near her eighth grade year. Anxiety due to future plans.
“ It was hard for me so I pushed it all away and focused on the present., “ Jones said.
“ I didn’t want to be nothing,” Jones said.
Many of her high school teachers tried to assure her that they didn’t know what to do at her age, but little did they know their words made no change.
“ I don’t want to be you, I want to be me; I was still stuck, no one knew,” Jones said.
At one point her mother sat her down for a talk. It soothed her and made her feel better about what she was going through. This did not fix the problem completely. Her mother explained that she still didn’t know what to do when she was twenty, it took her five years to get the job she wanted. She assured Katie that as long as she kept trying to find what she really wanted to do in life, it would come to her. Katie feels like her mother had it worse than her and that made her feel better.
" I don't stress as much as I did before, but the fear is still there,” Jones said.
She is still unsure of what she wants to do in life, but she is assured it will be productive and she will enjoy it. Her problem has decreased greatly thanks to the talk with her mother.
