I worry over a LOT of things, be they big or small… But oftentimes I’ve found myself concerned over the upcoming school year; will things work out? Can I handle the workload after 5 years of getting my life back together? Etc. I worry over my relationships &. their strength- I’ve only held very few people close to me and all the others have been burnt or strained over time. I worry about being falling into a self-deprecating pattern &. I over-analyse the future (by projecting so far ahead…) I panic. It doesn’t matter if something happened 5 seconds ago, or even 5 years ago, I WILL get stressed over it; I could’ve done something better, right? But I’m working on managing it!
