How to make it work

I often find myself worrying about living alone. Simple things like, “Can I fold all of these clothes?” or “How will I be able to cook for myself?” seem to trouble me more than anything school-related.

Just yesterday I struggled with folding bedsheets and cooking lunch for myself, never realizing the time and effort it takes to do a good job on these chores. There is a difference, I think, in seeing someone else put in effort versus having to do the task yourself and feel pressure to “do it right.”

But as in many difficult tasks, I think I just need to rely on my parents and friends more and stop trying to take on too many responsibilities alone, without asking others for advice. And keep watch to make sure I do not procrastinate, of course!
