2. It Can Get Lonely
Something that I wasn’t prepared for was the feeling of loneliness that occurs after graduation. Focusing most of your time on bar exam prep can feel isolating and the learning process can bring a feeling of loneliness as well. This comes with figuring out your career and transitioning from one point to another. Make sure that you are doing things to take care of yourself. There is no shame in talking out these feelings to your friends or anyone else. Try not to isolate yourself. Go out. Make sure that you surround yourself with people who understand and who are open to supporting you. Take the time to be introspective about the things that you want and that feeling of loneliness. Oftentimes, feeling lonely is not just about the absence of someone else, but rather because of something that you want for yourself. Fight for the goals that you want to achieve. Remember that no one else can create your path but you.
