Social anxiety

A to Z Challenge: M is for ME – MIRIAM

The surname I was born with began with an E. I loved being ME. But who was ME? Who is ME? Who am I?

I’m a wife, a mother, a sister, a cousin, a technical and creative writer. I’m British, Israeli, at least middle-aged although I feel younger. A car driver, a hiker, a dancer, a singer. I used to be a daughter, a piano and violin player, a mathematician, a computer programmer.

I’m wrapped in an extra layer, called social anxiety. But that’s not me at all. The wrapping has to be removed to find me.

And I still don’t think I’ve worked out who I really am. Perhaps I never will.

Do you know who you are?
