Went to the store by myself.

So today, I went to the store by myself, I had a lot of anxiety about it before I left. Even before I got there, and I was in the vehicle getting driven there, I wasn’t sure that this was the right thing to do.
Because I don’t have much confidence in myself, it was even harder for me to achieve this.
As I got closer to the store, my heart was beating so fast, I couldn’t breathe properly, I was scared. I just wanted to go back home, to my “somewhat safe place.”
instead I pushed through the anxiety, I asked the driver to help me to the service desk, and then asked for assistance, they helped me without question, as I knew they would. Some of my family were being ignorant about that before I left, saying that the people at the front counter wouldn’t help me. I argued with them, telling them that they would of course help me.

I had the customer service person who was helping me wait for my ride with me. I told him he didn’t have to, but he did nevertheless.

I’m happy that I went to the store though.

Thanks for reading.

  1. I think it’s fantastic tori that you are attempting to get out in the world on your own. It’s a shame you don’t have more support from your family, never the less don’t let that stop you, you’re are doing wonderful keep up the good work and with every new step you achieve it will become easier. All our love auntie shay and Allan. Ox
