Sometimes I wonder why I chose to be a teacher being an introvert. I wonder how I am able to stand teaching in a big school with more than one thousand students and almost one hundred teachers. The only rational explanation I can find is that I really love teaching.
Today some of my students are graduating. They are nice people. I enjoyed teaching them. I have not attended a graduation ceremony in many years. This year I intended to make an exception. But the thought of a venue crowded with students, colleagues and parents is unbearable. As the time when the ceremony got closer, I started getting more and more anxious. Images of myself having a panic attack and having to leave the ceremony crossed my mind. So this year will not be an exception. I have to accept my limits.
