This may be a long post. It's been three years since I accomplished one of the biggest things of my life. The last month of high school my anxiety was so terrible, I had to sit in the hall for most of my classes. Even thinking about walking at graduation gave me a panic attack, and I was dead set on not doing it at all. But because of the support from my parents, all my teachers, and friends, I did the unthinkable. I was a nervous wreck sitting through the ceremony, but as soon as I walked on the stage I was instantly calm. I did it. Even now I still can't believe I did, but I've never been more proud of myself for it. "Courage cannot erase our fears: courage is when we face our fears." (-Newsies) So if you have any anxiety like mine, just know that you are without a doubt capable of taking on your biggest fears. When you do, it will give you the biggest hope and determination to keep taking chances and not letting your fears hold you back.
