I don’t know if I just have a lazy temperament and I’m taking it way out of hand, or if I actually do have some psychological anxiety here, but…
I get extremely nervous over the smallest of responsibilities. I commit one small sin and I’ve angered God, or I screw up one school assignment and I’ve wasted my tuition raised by my hard-working mother, I say one wrong thing to my friends and I’ll forever be some kind of outcast.
It’s not so much that I cannot fulfill my responsibilities, it’s just the fact that I feel so… trapped. Like even if I wanted to just waste my life by sleeping 20 hours a day, I couldn’t. I have nowhere to go, and if I screw up the path I’m on now, it’s over.
Could you recommend some course of action for my anxiety? I do trust in the Lord, that life will be OK if I just stay faithful, but that does not do anything for my feeling of entrapment.
