I highly suggest you stay off websites like this, if that's how you're feeling. There is far too much unwarranted pessimism and negativity. It's enough to depress anyone. Sure there is some truth behind much of it, and I agree with a lot of the fundamental principles, but you'd be better off avoiding news all together.

you are young and have a lot to look forward to. You are far better off than most people on this planet, and it sounds like you're intelligent, and responsible.

Despite what some people say, no one knows how things will pan out. There are far too many variables. There is no sense in worrying about it. It's good to be prepared for hard economic times, and it would be in your best interest to educate yourself in a variety of ways that interest you. learn practical things that you enjoy such as programming, web design, auto repair, construction. Learn skills online for free. Save some money when you can. But also enjoy life. you don't want to look back when you are older with regret that you didn't do more when you were younger. You don't need a lot of money. Build strong friendships. Spend time with family. Help others. Find out what makes you happy and healthy.

just don't let the unknown get you down. Live in the moment, while being aware and prepared for the possibility that the economy could become worse. Worrying won't help you.

I highly recommend adding exercise into your routine. And I have also found mindfulness meditation to be very beneficial for someone like you. If you want some resources for that, I can try to find some for you.

Anyhow, I wish you the best.
