“I finally applied for a promotion. I was very anxious about it because it's a lot of new, extra responsibilities. It's not that much more money either. The reason I want it though is because I want to challenge myself. I want to show myself that everything will be ok. I want to succeed, especially in a hard situation. I want to prove to myself that I am able and competent. That I can and that I will. I am nervous of course. Last time I tried, I had constant anxiety. This time will be different.”
