Why education is important to you?

By: Dr. Jennifer B. Lagrotte, DMFT

When most think about getting more education, they will immediately think about going back to school at a university or college. Going back to university can seem glamorous for some, but it can be a terrifying thought for others. However, regardless of whether one wants to go to a post-secondary institution or not, there are other ways one can pursue education in order to expand their knowledge if college or university is out of the question. Libraries, personal tutors and evening classes are all ways one can go about seeking more education, whether it is to brush up on some skills or to see if one is interested in a certain subject before committing themselves to it.

As strange as it might seem, there are many who can feel quite anxious when just thinking about school. Whether they are a younger person in their mid-twenties who feels they need to be doing more with their life, or someone in their mid-fifties who would like to make a radical change in their life, education is something that anyone can pursue. There are many reasons for people to avoid going back for some more education, some of which are legitimate but most of which are excuses as one strives to avoid doing something that requires effort and dedication. It is normal for someone to feel a little anxious about going back to school and doing something different, bit it should never be something that stands in the way of one improving their self.

For those who push the anxiety aside, but are unsure of what kind of education they would like to pursue, there is the option of contacting an online counselor. Online therapy, in this case, should be seen as a tool that can help guide one to their ultimate decision. Going back to school can be frightening, and is definitely a big decision that should never be taken lightly, but it is also an exciting choice that can open the door to many more possibilities in life. This is why some careful thought needs to be put into what one really wants to go back to school for, especially if they are looking to choose a career they will have for many years. Speaking with an online therapist about one's ideas can help one to sort out their thoughts, as well as help guide them towards what they really want to do. Online counseling can help one look deep within to realize their passion, interests and goals in life. Through realizing these, a clear decision on what kind of education they should seek can be made. The only barriers most have are the ones they put on themselves, which are often excuses as to why going back to further their education or change their life is not possible. Age is probably one of the more common excuses. No one is ever too old to go to school if they truly want to improve themselves, expand their knowledge or try for a new career.
