I kept myself in check this entire semester. I power drilled through everything. Good results were well earned treats. Bad results were used to fuel my motive to work harder. Be stronger. Tune out the noise. I made sure I wouldn’t be bogged down, I was going to change everything.
And today, I cracked. I contained the anxiety in my shaky fingers until I got home to sit on the kitchen floor. Slow breathing. And it felt okay until the fear began laughing at the idea that I should be over it so quickly, closed its claws around my neck.
And my dad saw everything. I let him lower the bar for me. I feel like a shitty ass child. Weak little fuck.
Until the very last day, I was doing so well this entire semester. I am very sorry for it.
