Do you feel stuck and unproductive after high school graduation? Or maybe you’re a parent of a young adult and have begun to notice that your child is struggling with college or the shift towards a career.
Failure to launch syndrome affects many adults who struggle to transition from high school to college, or from studying to a full-time job.
Many young adults may find themselves struggling with a lack of motivation and necessary skills. It’s easy to get caught in a rut when you’re feeling discouraged and out-of-sync with your friends that seem to have “made it”.
Can mental health be playing a role in the failure to launch?
Often, “failure to launch” is experienced because of a sense of being unworthy or not good enough. Self-criticism and self-doubt can cause a lack of confidence in your competence and ability.
These negative feelings often fuel anxiety and can keep you feeling immobilized and trapped.
Failure to launch often coexists with other mental health challenges, such as depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem.
