There’s a strange sort of attitude when it comes to higher education in America.

If you don’t have some sort of degree by the age of 30, you’re somehow a failure. Never mind that trades like iron working, plumbing and carpentry are still important jobs that require their own brand of education.

There’s a sort of obligation to go to college, whether you want to or not. It’s to the point where the requirement of having a bachelor’s degree for many jobs is meaningless.

That said, going back can also be an expression of self-care. Meeting new people, learning new things and generally expanding your mind are all ways to take care of yourself.

I’ve made that decision, recently. It’ll be stressful and challenging, but I’m also excited to make some changes for the better in my life.

When we hear “self-care” we think relaxation, but it can also be something difficult. It could be a way to finally make some big, positive differences in quality of life and growth.

By that metric, going back to school is self-care, even if it will, and already has, spelled out stress in the short-term.
