My "Little Somethings of Me" posts are created to help me communicate with my readers. I often feel like when I reach a blog I either feel as though I know entirely too much about that person or not at all enough. Although I still like a bit of anonymity, as I think all bloggers have their right to. I do like to share with you all what happens in my life and events that have shaped who I am. I know that when I read posts that are honest and when I can see the blogger shine through are the ones I relate most to.
My confession isn't dark and deep but it is something indeed that I need to get off my chest.
Have you ever felt so nervous about something that you almost avoid it at all costs? Well I've found myself at that exact impasse with my essay application to graduate school. I know that I will eventually get it done but I don't know that it will be excellent or even good. And that is my main fear, because I know so much rests on it. I know my happiness depends on whether or not I receive an acceptance letter. I know this letter could determine what I do for the rest of my life. And I know that a big deal of my fears and anxiety over this have to do with my warped view of success. Sometimes I see small failures as large blows on my overall success. I hope that in confessing this to you all and putting it into writing will help me finally face my fears.
Have you ever felt this way? Or have you ever examined your views on success and what it means to you?
