Today I'm going back to see her to talk about some possible reading I could do. Last time my doctor told me I may have some mild anxiety and OCD issues and that I could try reading some books about it, or see a therapist or even go on medication depending on what I felt was necessary or what I was comfortable with. At first I didn't want to do any of them but I feel like it's a good choice to start to educate myself with this. If I tried to stifle these feelings they may get worse. I'm happy with my decision to reach out and understand myself.
Basically I'm telling you this story a) to simply share with you and b) to remind everyone that things are not always as they appear. As of lately I've been trying to understand the people around me better. I think I make some quick explanations for why people are the way they are and it's important to try to see past what people show you and try to understand the motives behind how people act.
"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
And I'll leave you with that.
