Anxiety? I don’t have anxiety.
I have been there, too.
And when you finally figure it out how bad anxiety is, it’s almost as if everyone else wants to help in very unhelpful ways.
The truth is that we need to stop for a minute and listen to our own body, our intuition, and hone in on what it’s trying to tell us.
aside from what everyone else “thinks” and we really need to kick our heels in the dirt and start to legitimately
Deal. With. It.
No more closed doors, no more blocked memories, and no more painful regrets.
Anxiety can be felt in so many different ways and we are all so different that we can’t expect to all be the same.
Not only that, but can I just be really real with you all and say there has been a huge stigma against anxiety/depression?
Maybe I’m the only one that feels that way, I don’t know.
But what I do know is that it’s literally life altering, and it takes hold of your everyday life when you let it have control.
And those who are suffering and being silenced, feel like they no longer have a place to stand or even a voice to use.
Giving anxiety full control is the easiest part, and gaining your control back is the hardest.
You have to keep fighting for yourself.
You know yourself and what you are feeling better than anyone else.
Be real about it, talk about it with the right trusted people, and hopefully you will find your path to healing.
In case you were wondering, here are just a few signs that you or someone you know might be struggling with anxiety and not even aware of it.
It’s almost as if no one wants to deal with the root of the problems and they just want you to cover it up.
I hate to say it, but anxiety and depression can only be medicated for so long, but they will continue to be there until the cause is taken care of..
Anyone that has suffered for long periods of time can agree that it really can get better.
No, it’s not easy to just deal.. it’s hard! You kinda have to make the choice for yourself in what kind of “hard” you want to deal with in life.
BUILD RESILIENCE FOR YOURSELF
You need to build up that healthy boundary with yourself, and to stop letting the dreadful anxiety win again.
It all starts with awareness,
which is why I honk it’s important to know what you are feeling exactly.
Once you can understand what you are dealing with,
you will then be able to start digging in a bit deeper with more confidence in what your doing
because you know what it is your really dealing with in the first place.
Here are some tips I found from BelievePHQ on Twitter, and I feel like they add a lot of validation to the changes I have personally been making myself.
So, I wanted to share with you all too!
You just really never know who may be going through something as similar as you are,
and can use the tools you have built for yourself to begin breaking the trail for themselves.
Heck, Use your pain for a purpose! I promise you one thing, that someone out in this world gets you and understands you..
you are never alone.
Remember that without grief, there would be no healing at all.
Don’t beat yourself up for having those negative feelings because those are natural too.
Just don’t allow yourself to feel negative for very long, because that’s when you are giving it control.
Feel it, accept it, and move on.
You got this!
