I’ve experienced deep, painful, traumatic things. Been thrown into deep emotional and physical trenches and clawed my way out. I see down the trench. I’ve grown, wizened up, and healed.
Why, then, am I so nervous for a simple skill-testing exercise that will help me find a job?
I imagined I would be beyond such worries, but I guess I’m still human, and shy, despite the events of the last year.
It’s not time to give up. I can do this. Hell yes, I can do well, even. But I’m scared.
