Family support is certainly a blessing in this time of personal uncertainty, but independence is a constant reminder to try and be as self-sufficient as one possibly can. This puts a lot of pressure on the recently-graduated college person. Having a job and an apartment directly out of college is also a blessing, but the real world is still a daunting place. Working eight hours a day, having a bedtime before 12 am, paying rent/bills, buying weekly groceries; these are all prospects that make graduates say, "Great, now I actually have to be an adult."
1) Always keep in touch with your family! They give the best advice.
2) Settle for any kind of work, even the kind that garners your spite. It builds character (and resumes).
3) Keep in touch with close friends or relationship partners. They also give good advice, but the kind that says, "Let's have a drink and then we'll talk."
Optimism is key in the world we live in today.
