I haven’t gone outside in over a year. I haven’t left the house. I’m 19, I graduated HS in June 2015.My senior year was complete shit, I failed all my classes except the ones I needed for credit. So I got my diploma but didn’t walk the stage. At first I felt badass about it, it was a form of rebelling against my peers and questioning what important milestones really meant. I had been such a viciously quiet, timid socially awkward person throughout my whole life . I still am. It was a silent fuck you to everyone who thought I was just a nice kid. A nice kid to step on, and stutter back in silence. I’ve done everything I’ve been asked of. By counselors , teachers. They didn’t give a crap. Go to college, go to college, go to college. Hold up! Let me breathe!! I was tired of running trying to catch up with everyone . Im not the brightest I’ve always been kinda slow. I’m not a good person. I hate the intrusive thoughts that I get sometimes, I’ve had them since I was 12 and they intensified during high school. I’m just so scared. Of who I am and of everyone. I see my peers on social media in school, having fun. While I’m here, wasting away slowly. I’m strangely contended and disgusted with what I’ve done. Which is nothing with my life. Now I think, How will I explain this gap in my work resume. They’re gonna know I’m full of shit, since based on how socially stunted I am. I want to go to school, get a job, but I’m scared and lazy. My parents are embarrassed and my older sibling probably pats her back and says “ well, at least I’m not the black sheep.” I don’t know what to do with my life. That’s lie. I know but I probably won’t do it.
i dunno… been having a lot of anxiety again as an arab american since november. like i’ve discussed before, growing up as a kid post 9/11 was a really shitty experience for me. that’s when i realized that not only was i different from my peers, but the things that made me different were perceived as flaws. all the things that were said and done to me and my family will never go away, neither will all the time and effort i had to spend learning to love myself and undo years of being ashamed of who i am. so here i am at 23 and im changing my name on FB bc i used to go by my first name and middle name (to throw off potential employers but a bitch is getting paid, so…), which is Jehad. Jehad is my dad’s name. well, he changed the spelling from Jihad bc he thought people wouldn’t tell the difference (never asked people if it worked, don’t super care). jihad means struggle. it’s funny bc in islam (from what i understand, please correct me if i’m wrong) jihad is also a spiritual struggle we must conquer, which leads us to enlightenment. anyone who knows me well knows i do what i want, when i want and i don’t really care about how others take it (to a fault, like maybe i should lol) but i’ve had a lot of anxiety lately about my middle name. i had to get fingerprinted for work and when the tech saw my middle name, he asked me if i was born in the US and was pretty uncomfortable. for the first time in a long time i actually felt kind of scared. and a secondary shame, which is bullshit bc i didn’t choose to be an arab. i’m proud of who i am and where my parents come from. white nonsense shouldn’t make me feel this way, no one should make me feel this way. but alas this is trump’s america and i feel like that confused, scared 3rd grader again and i’m not into it. anyway, i felt like maybe talking about stuff like this would make me feel better. i’m scared to travel honestly. i’m scared to really be myself in a lot of ways, but i thought my arab identity crisis was vintage, but i guess not in trump’s america.
