A Message To Those With Anxiety
Anxiety is akin to a brick wall being built right in the middle of comfort and potential happiness. The disadvantages that are caused by anxiety can make life feel like no life at all, but that is not true. It's important to remember that you do have a life and it is indeed worth living. You are still your own person and anxiety does not have to control your life.
It is possible to get past your anxiety.
Usually anxiety is caused by the mind creating a bigger problem then is actually there. Living with it can be hard sometimes, but it’s important to remember that each and every time you feel anxious that you are going to be okay. You are a fine and wonderful person and any feelings of worry or stress are going to pass.
You are not some kind of freak or outcast if you shake or sweat or twiddle your fingers
while you are talking to someone. It’s okay if you get “butterflies” in your stomach
around someone you don't like. It’s okay if you have a weak handshake as your hand
shakes as well. It’s important to remember that none of these things and no other
symptoms of any type of anxiety make you any less of a person.
There is nothing wrong with you the way that you are.
Having anxiety does not mean there is something wrong with you. It’s important to
not put yourself down. It is so easy to repeat negativity to yourself that sometimes
you start to believe it. The things that you may pressure or put yourself down about
are not true. When you catch negative thoughts coming into your mind, it is important
to flip them. Just like it became easy to encumber yourself with hurtful thoughts,
it will gradually become easier to empower yourself with your own positivity, support,
If you have anxiety -
But you are not your anxiety and “anxiety” does not define who you are as a person.
You have a name, and it’s not “anxious”, “worthless” or “anxiety”.
Sometimes therapy can help. Getting help does not make you any less of a person. However, if you cannot afford therapy, there is no need to worry, as there are other ways to get through this. Therapy can help, but it also is not magic. Ultimately, you have to learn to help yourself by thinking more positively and reminding yourself that you are important, beautiful and loved. Live for today and know that there is always going to be more to explore, learn and to love. Tomorrow is not here yet and yesterday has already passed.
