last thursday i created a new resume and went to drop it off but the place was closed. the next opportunity i have to drop it off before the deadline is tomorrow - right before my appointment. double whammy anxiety!
here's how anxiety works for me: while my mind is totally calm, my body disagrees. i cannot stress this enough. in my head i am totally collected. it doesn't matter how prepared i am, how excited i am, or even how many times i've been in a similar situation. my mouth gets dry, my body feels hot, and my stomach is always upset! even on my wedding day, my friends told me that i was disturbingly calm, but for a number of hours i had a literal pain in my heart. why does it have to be like this? just for once i would love for my body to follow in step with my mind. because i feel then like i could do anything, handle anything that is thrown at me - and no doubt i would feel more confident!
what type of symptoms do you feel when you are anxious? can anyone relate to this?
