I’ve Done This Before

I was texting my mom today about my anxiety about work. That’s when I realized that I had been through this exact same experience before just in a different setting.

My freshman year at uni was horrible. I had panic attacks, I was alone, I just wanted to give up and go home.

This is exactly how I feel right now.

That made me chuckle. I survived that experience! I did it! And I lived! I gained new experience and grew and found my place. It took a lot to get through it but I did.

I think I’m just going through a lot of the same changes now. New career. New people. But ultimately I like what I’m doing. I hope I can put off the anxiety so I can really live now. I’ve hidden in fear for a really long time.
