Having anxiety is a constant battle and most days that voice tells me that I’m weak, I shouldn’t speak up and become self-consciousness about everything.
I know that I’m hard on myself and I strive to push past this every day – I refuse to let anxiety control my life.
Easier said than done
With the New Year right around the corner, I always become reflective:
What was the biggest lesson I learned? What was the biggest risk I took? What surprised me this year?
Trying to put the positives in light knowing that my over-thinking will soon take hold
Here’s a list of everything you did wrong: You couldn’t overcome THIS challenge, You cannot assert yourself in confrontations, why on EARTH do you even bother talking?
So, this post is for all of my anxiety-ridden people who think that the negative aspects outweigh the positive.
Look at this past year and think:
I did it! I made it through each day!
You should be proud of how spirited you are. Impressed that you found that motivation to get out of bed. Pleased that you gain the power to ignore your anxious thoughts most days and live life to the best of your ability.
You’ve tried so hard, put in so much effort, and have gone so far.
My only wish: The New Year brings more memorable and joyful memories for you all
