Things about me

Just putting a few thoughts down. This list ended up being an introspective adventure for me!
  1. I over-analyze my social mishaps even years after they happen. May be accompanied by harsh self-criticism of said events.
    May have something to do with being introverted. On that note...
  2. I didn't realize I was an introvert until I was 25.
    I felt betrayed that I didn't recognize this core feature about myself and was very relieved when I figured it out.
  3. Studying abroad was one of the best things I did in college but it was basically a 4-month-long identity crisis for me.
    For that reason, I don't really want to go back even though it's a great country.
  4. Recognizing my depression and anxiety has helped me understand more about myself than anything else.
  5. I'm still trying to figure out how to handle my "bad" depression days.
    I'm fortunate to now have more good days than bad, so what should I do on the bad days? Try to ignore it? Fester in it until it subsides? Actively seek out a solution? Does such a solution even exist? I feel like my ability to do this should be reminiscent of my ability on a good day, but that doesn't seem fair or practical. So the cycle continues.
  6. A lot of my confidence and self-worth is tied to being able to serve others.
    I primarily fulfill this by working in healthcare.
