5 October 2011

Being a journalist again — teaching kids to be. All the stress that I remember creeping back in. Is this for me? Feeling restless. To have the desire to do something more. I’m terrified of all the ways I used to feel — I’m not sure I want to do this anymore.

  1. Evelyn, this post came exactly when I needed it. Just last night after dinner I expressed similar feelings to David (“I don’t know if I want to do this anymore! Am I good enough to finish what I started? I want a different kind of job, a more fulfilling one…” etc.). When I thought about it later, I wasn’t sure anymore whether those feelings are actually real, or if I’m just sabotaging myself because what I’m doing right now is so damn difficult and I’m just afraid of failure. Either way, it’s good to know that one is not alone in this; that everyone has doubts and fear of failure sometimes.

    • Tina, I’m glad I’m not the only one who doubts her career decisions. Thanks for this comment, and I’m glad it helped 🙂
