  • Anxiety is a bitch. The best way to deal with anxiety is to speak to a professional.

  • If you gain the place in the college course then that means you're better than the person who would otherwise get it. And by denying society the better candidate, you'd be doing society an injustice.

    The best way you can help society though is by helping yourself, look after your mental health. Society's success should be measured on how happy its citizens are, not by how 'successful' they are.

  • I get that too, mental health issues suck and are completely irrational. Talk to to therapist, I usually try to open up the stuff I need to work on while I'm there so my therapist can help me get over the mental roadblock. It might not be normal but that doesn't mean that there's something wrong with you.
