There is something huge that you can do for yourself right now, and that is to avail yourself of whatever counseling services are available on campus. Universities have wonderful mental health services, usually completely free. The next three semesters may be the only time in your life that you can benefit from free therapy, please jump at this opportunity – it may be life-changing.

Being apprehensive about leaving academia for the workforce is normal and very common. You can deal with these fears, process your childhood trauma, and start the healing process in therapy.
