Dear Christine, Last year was life-changing for you. You changed your career and have taken off in both your personal and professional life. I expect that in this New Year, you are going to succeed in accomplishing goals that have been on your list for a long time.
I was with my children's father for eleven years, five of those we were married. He began cheating on me 3 months into our relationship, but I continued to give him chance after chance. I believed his apologies and sorrows for his ways. I thought if I just toughed out his immature days, it would surely improve. I legitimately believed that I could gear his focus to me instead of others and that since we had children it could all work out.
You may believe you understand anxiety, but what you don’t realize is that everyone's experience is different. I did not used to have this disorder; I only suffered from major depression. Now, over the past two years, anxiety has presented itself rapidly in my life. It has grown to affect my daily tasks.
We all care about what others think of us, no matter how masked you present your feelings about it, we all secretly crave to be liked. The internet has progressed tremendously since the AOL dial-up I had growing up. I can still hear the dial-tone now! I used to chat with my friends (when I was allowed) and I loved having a creative username that made me look “cool”. I was excited when we graduated from Myspace to Facebook. I was even more elated when it came about because I had a college email that allowed me to participate. Those rules have progressed as well.
