SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: January 21, 2016

I regret saying “No” to the opportunities that were offered to me at work last year. Since then, I’ve watched several of my coworkers move up and I’m still at the bottom in comparison to them. It’s a hard pill to swallow, but I’m genuinely happy for everyone. I’m glad that they were ambitious and didn’t let fear keep them stagnant. I regret letting this be the story of my life for so many years, too. I was very shy as a child and struggled with anxiety as a teenager. Back then, it was easy to avoid situations that brought on the feeling of fear. I didn’t have any major responsibilities aside from school so I could get away with it. As an adult, it’s a hindrance. I’m trying my best to maintain the little bit of hope that I have left before it completely runs out. I honestly feel that my life is damaged beyond repair. So, the biggest regret of my life is not doing enough to prevent it from ending up this way.

  1. See a doctor, get anxiety medication. It has transformed my life. I resisted for years until I finally had enough of the fear and anxiety holding me back, and I was older than you when I did. It’s never too late. Get help. It’s ok. You aren’t weak for doing it and nobody else has to know.
