Overwhelmed with life

In every aspect of life I feel like I have all of these problems and hurdles to overcome in order to feel better. I need a job, I need to work harder at school, I need to work on my driving anxiety and get a car, I should definitely socialize with friends more, I need a better diet and to start working out, etc...

It's way too overwhelming because I feel like I can't figure out how to decide what to improve first. Some things have deadlines and other things can only happen if I do another thing first (For example, I can't get a car if I'm too nervous to drive. But I can't drive without money and a job. But how will I get a job if I'm too anxious to leave the house? And I'll feel like crap regardless, if I'm eating horribly and not taking care of myself.) I'm not good at multitasking and I can't figure out how to organize and prioritize my life. Any advice? :/

My first piece of advice is stop saying "can't." Even if you feel this way, don't say it and make it become real. Do not let Anxiety stop you from doing what you want, you have to be uncomfortable in order to make progress and beat this monster. The only way to get over your anxiety of driving is to drive and take it one step at a time. You are overwhelming yourself by having to do all these tasks instead of seeing what is priority and taking it one step, day at a time. You have to start believing that these things (job, money, growth) will happen even if you do not feel like it. Don't let the weariness take over. Speak things into existence... like literally TALK IT OUT LOUD... it will come, it will get better, nothing is forever. Please don't be discouraged.
