Totally confused and stuck in a corner.

Why am I so on the fence? I have wanted to do this for so long.

Now I feel guilty about my son, everything. Am I just scared?

I have to decide today. And give the law school an answer today by 5:00.


I appreciate all you guys listening and the advice.



Why do I feel this way

Because you're a mom. And part of being a mom means that you often care more for your children than you do yourself. And that you give up things so that you can be a better mom. So when the time comes to do soemthing big for yourself, it feels really unusual. And feeling unusual can sometimes disguise itself as feeling wrong.

Up till now this has only been a dream, a what-if, a sometime-in-the-future. As long as it is a dream and not a reality, you cannot fail.

You're afraid to give up the dream and make it a reality. Because once it is a reality you no longer have full control.

But it is much better to try and fail then to regret never having tried at all.

DO IT. If it doesn't work or you hate it, you can always go back to your present life.

Good Luck.
