“I'm out of school and got a job working for a Laboratory. Within a week I made a mistake that is now looking like it will cost me my job within the next few weeks. I made a mistake due to me going too fast, not paying attention, and constantly trying to compare myself to others to the point that now I am in a position in which I feel inferior to everyone in the workplace. I try my hardest and I know that I can do better since I learned from this experience. But constant fear impedes my work.”
