Don’t regret time spent on compulsions
I’m coming to the end of my final year at university and have come to the realisation that I spent a lot of it worried about anxiety and ocd themes. Don’t get me wrong I’m still on the way out of it, but even just a few weeks dedicated to stopping compulsions and ‘figuring it out’ has lifted a veil and I feel like I’ve missed out so much of the outside world. This is time I’ll never get back - I’m sad to leave education, something I love and value highly. Please, please - push yourself so hard to stop trying to figure it out and get yourself back into the world and your life. There’s so much out there and you will look back and regret this lost time.
