For people who are feeling nervous or sad about leaving home and family, I just want you to know that it really helps to let it out now rather than later. I was feeling really excited and happy, and all of a sudden a few minutes ago, I got really sad and cried. But my mom reminded me of all the good things I have coming my way, and I feel just as good as I did an hour ago. I'm not saying I won't get homesick eventually, but at least not all of my anxiety is pent up anymore.
Have a good cry while you're still around people who won't judge you
