‘School has been a cause of stress for me, meeting deadlines and doing exams. I feel the stress in my stomach. I feel dread that something is going to come, some sort of punishment. It used to stop me sleeping.
‘The pandemic has definitely been weird. It’s been much harder to work from home because that’s the place where you relax.
‘But, during the pandemic I read Ecclesiastes. It’s about a man who says that life is useless. I found it useful, because it made me see that God is in control and that he knows everything that will be, so you should be able to go with what’s happening.
‘So, if I get any anxiety, I remind myself that he is in control and then I can leave things in his control. I try to do that as much as possible. Sometimes it’s not as easy as other times! But, I have got much better at it. I talk to him and I say, “I need help with this, and I know you can deal with it”.
‘I have definitely seen God dealing with stuff and I feel thankful for that. Some of the things that I worry about have gone away. That’s so nice.’
