This is me tonight – somewhat relieved, but simultaneously still anxious.
I had my Psychology of Addictions midterm this morning, and I’m relieved it’s over, however, that doesn’t mean that all of my worries are gone. That’s the power of dialectics. You can have two opposing truths – in my case, relief and anxiety.
Today, I’m trying to appreciate both, because both anxiety and relief are important. In fact, all emotions are important, even the ones that seem terrible and painful and overwhelming.
We have to feel everything to feel anything, so, here I am tonight, trying to embrace it all.
