Shadows can still freak me out

When I was a kid I had a tendency to be “jumpy.” This hasn’t changed in my adult life. When the phone rings I jump. When a car passes and makes a loud noise I jump. I tend to hit the goddamn ceiling when the alarm goes off. For all of my adult life I have wanted the jumping to stop. I have wanted to be the chill fucker who doesn’t jump at everything. It has never happened and most likely will not. I’m a nervous twitchy bitch.

I’ve finally learned to accept that this is who I am. I get scared. I get nervous. I FUCKING JUMP.
