“I start work at a new job tomorrow. In some ways I'm feeling calmer about it the closer it gets. Maybe it's becoming a concrete thing instead of an abstract fear. I'm not sure. I'm highly anxious about things surrounding the job. I've also been happy about getting it, but my fear and anxiety has been overriding the positive feelings. More income solves so many problems and will be a source of confidence, I hope. I'm trying to focus on the happy, and not on the fear. Emphasize trying.”
