Lucas will be a senior in high school this fall and his future looms in front of him. The pressure of societal expectations weighs heavy. His own desire to succeed and the fear that he won’t, reveals itself in anxiety and anger. What if he doesn’t succeed in college or in life? What if he’s just average, or worse?
His mom watches the struggle and wishes she could take the pain away. She wants to give her son positive energy and encourage him to be willing to explore the world a bit. To give himself time to grow, to learn, to make mistakes, to find his passion, to fail, to succeed, and most of all just to LIVE. She has every confidence in her boy. She trusts his future is bright and that he will find his own path forward. She loves him very very much.
