Thank you, Kemi for your response. I believe that God uses everything we have for his glory. Moses was a stutterer, yet he was able to lead the people of Israel (almost) to the promised land. I’ve come to accept and liken my analytical, detailed-obsessive part as a double-edged sword. Depending on how I wield it, I could either preserve life or damage life. It’s a trait that can be honed to really do useful work. It’s the same trait that has helped me stay passionate about my research and keep learning all I can.

All I am saying is that there’s hope. Don’t give up on yourself. You really aren’t alone, so that should ‘normalize’ the trait — I hope.
