1. "Do I really, really have to go back?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F29%2F636213019796607746-664184797_thoughts%25202.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=160&h=fd80a72cd1a4a69a503d258d7e6463e1738951baa68e46d6f01e798223ba12aa&size=980x&c=1855010794 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F29%252F636213019796607746-664184797_thoughts%2525202.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D160%26h%3Dfd80a72cd1a4a69a503d258d7e6463e1738951baa68e46d6f01e798223ba12aa%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1855010794%22%7D" expand=1]

Yup, we all do.

2. "Should I just drop out?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F29%2F636213020448416677-75207628_thoughts%25203.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=629&h=c9bfa6129c576f92aec8dd3ce6c7b295790b7cfecddc3de0c1aa173395b898b7&size=980x&c=1569469876 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F29%252F636213020448416677-75207628_thoughts%2525203.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D629%26h%3Dc9bfa6129c576f92aec8dd3ce6c7b295790b7cfecddc3de0c1aa173395b898b7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1569469876%22%7D" expand=1]

Honestly, we've all thought it.

3. "Dang, new classes means having to meet new people."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F29%2F6362130212023090541797403437_thoughts%25204.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=461&h=6a81cce94c8b6d8ddd4694cb8b6cf8d8426af654de7a255f01488a8f43d8555f&size=980x&c=3323674825 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F29%252F6362130212023090541797403437_thoughts%2525204.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D461%26h%3D6a81cce94c8b6d8ddd4694cb8b6cf8d8426af654de7a255f01488a8f43d8555f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3323674825%22%7D" expand=1]

Turns out, in college, you get to repeat those awkward first classes with introductions and silence until you find the right person to become friends with.

4. "I can no longer ignore responsibility."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F29%2F6362130217352893872040212774_thoughts%25205.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=743&h=c39a23896c15eab5b722aef607ab9fff8f56b953c32167cf5579cc17ba59ca60&size=980x&c=1199209724 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F29%252F6362130217352893872040212774_thoughts%2525205.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D743%26h%3Dc39a23896c15eab5b722aef607ab9fff8f56b953c32167cf5579cc17ba59ca60%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1199209724%22%7D" expand=1]

If you're like me, you ignored it all break.

5. "I'm going to be sleepy all the time."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F29%2F636213023209923166-1672071961_thoughts%25206.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=342&h=fde3837a91db6c3fe9dc8c01c024cc2639aa5fd2e14c69d798f029cfa052a71e&size=980x&c=2647948769 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F29%252F636213023209923166-1672071961_thoughts%2525206.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D342%26h%3Dfde3837a91db6c3fe9dc8c01c024cc2639aa5fd2e14c69d798f029cfa052a71e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2647948769%22%7D" expand=1]

Maintaining a sleep schedule in college can be almost impossible.

6. "I'm going to miss that short period of time when I actually had privacy."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F29%2F6362130272802247661942744529_thoughts%25207.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=851&h=2365b82560f76eaa6d6414ba4b6b19636f7a9f06d6cd78750c9da8e479db445c&size=980x&c=3516596660 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F29%252F6362130272802247661942744529_thoughts%2525207.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D851%26h%3D2365b82560f76eaa6d6414ba4b6b19636f7a9f06d6cd78750c9da8e479db445c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3516596660%22%7D" expand=1]

Whether your roommate is awesome, or not-so awesome, there's not much privacy in dorm rooms.

7. "Bye-Bye money."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F29%2F636213018814709019-805971414_thoughts%25201.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=599&h=1832babc2fc236a5e40acb7851c5ff0ad8f7248757bf3ed74adaed21022a03eb&size=980x&c=2352944992 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F29%252F636213018814709019-805971414_thoughts%2525201.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D599%26h%3D1832babc2fc236a5e40acb7851c5ff0ad8f7248757bf3ed74adaed21022a03eb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2352944992%22%7D" expand=1]

This is something all of us as college students go through unless you're magically making bank. Textbooks are expensive and, of course, there are those times that you can no longer get yourself to eat cafeteria food.

8. "Can I go home?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F29%2F636213028074448338-201373174_thoughts%25208.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=302&h=1614436639b93935e9471058386748e5e0c32eaf3a755352b51822f631a72295&size=980x&c=1273655443 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F29%252F636213028074448338-201373174_thoughts%2525208.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D302%26h%3D1614436639b93935e9471058386748e5e0c32eaf3a755352b51822f631a72295%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1273655443%22%7D" expand=1]

Unless you're banking or live close to home, chances are slim. But, hey, you're not alone. I miss home too.

9. "I am counting down for when I get to go back home."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F29%2F6362130325219292861861423604_thoughts%25209.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=972&h=095dc8df0d528e8b3432f2500810cd285a224ce4753b7c84faeee01122f0b8bf&size=980x&c=45348848 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F29%252F6362130325219292861861423604_thoughts%2525209.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D972%26h%3D095dc8df0d528e8b3432f2500810cd285a224ce4753b7c84faeee01122f0b8bf%26size%3D980x%26c%3D45348848%22%7D" expand=1]

The majority of us are, you're not alone.

10. "Do I really, really have to go back?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F29%2F636213033166089274-43648392_thoughts%252010.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=367&h=b2b109215b398132bc1f5fb326608b08a49097bccc28a8b6c936a4ddc5a7e0aa&size=980x&c=2758873645 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F29%252F636213033166089274-43648392_thoughts%25252010.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D367%26h%3Db2b109215b398132bc1f5fb326608b08a49097bccc28a8b6c936a4ddc5a7e0aa%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2758873645%22%7D" expand=1]

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness.

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.
