If you’re a high school senior, you’ll know that once prom is over, you’ll have graduation to deal with. And if you’re in your final year of college, that graduation deadline has probably been hanging over your head for months.
Graduation is a pretty big deal because it marks the closing of one chapter in your life and the start of another. Sometimes, you don’t know what is going to happen in the next part of your life. Even if you have a plan, you won’t know exactly what’s going to happen. And things can change. It can lead to a lot of conflicting emotions.
What might make you feel better is knowing that you’re not alone because almost everyone who is graduating is going through it, too. Even if you’re not discussing your feelings with your friends, there are people out there who are getting real. That’s what we can thank the Whisper app for. It lets people post anonymous messages about how they feel about pretty much any topic, including graduating. Take a look at 15 Whisper confessions about graduating.
