“I have had a problem for years of doing work at school and then not being able to get it done outside of school. I finally figured out what the problem was. I realized that this anxiety is from not getting my work done, so I went to the library the other day and just did work. It was a pretty magical experience. It sounds really boring but it was so good for me. When I am at home, it feels impossible for me to get work done, because I am distracted by so many things. Although when I went to the library, I felt like I was still working at school. It made it so easy for me to get stuff done because I always get my work done during school. I think in the future if I am ever struggling with my anxiety or sadness, I can go to the library and reduce those feelings by getting my work done.”
