Change-I-want-to-make paragraph (cause/effect)
The change I would like to make in myself is to ameliorate my generalized anxiety disorder. One reason I want to make this change is because my anxiety disorder affects my speech production. When Ari Ne’eman, my friend, telephoned me, I was unable to produce words. He spoke on the telephone and I typed out my responses on instant messenger. Ari’s compassion was evidenced when he heard my sounds and stuttering through the receiver and said, “Just type.” Another reason I want to make this change is that my anxiety disorder affects my ability to perform at piano recitals. I am a perfectionist, thus I cannot stand making mistakes. For example, I performed at a piano recital. While waiting for my name to be called, I was extremely nervous. I asked questions repeatedly. Because of my fear of making mistakes, I cried on the way home.
