It’s graduation season! This can be a very joyous time when you’re finally done with school and ready to take on the world (it can also be such a scary time, let’s not ignore that), or it can remind you that you were “supposed to” be done with school by now, but you needed to take time off for your mental or physical health.
The absolute truth of the matter is that school will always be there. Your health comes first and that might mean taking off a semester or a year or 10 years. And in that time your interests might change and you’ll develop a new focus and a new drive. You may not finish “on time”, but you’ll finish when you’re ready.
