I can’t believe I’m finally able to write this entry.
Today I truly believe that I am ready to break through the label that has been keeping me from moving forward these few years. I’m done being the person with anxiety disorder. Well, for sure, I still experience the symptoms from time to time. However, I’m not letting the stereotype to hold myself back again.
Art from Google.
I used to almost believe that I can’t be a doctor because of the anxiety. I used to believe that I can’t get through examinations because of the anxiety. I used to believe that no one will ever be able to love me because of the anxiety. But now, I understand that I can be the one who doesn’t fall under those stereotypes.
I am going to work on myself. I’m going to pick myself up from where the anxiety had stalled me. Heck, I almost forgot how the ‘old’ Nadirah was like before the anxiety started to hit me. What a shame. I hope that from the experience, I could be a better version of myself. A better student, a better doctor, a better friend, a better daughter, a better sister, a better aunt, and overall a better person to be with. 😊
