Anxiety

Anxiety is a really misunderstood condition — and it is a condition, it’s not just the emotion some people think it is. It’s not one little thing that makes you anxious; it’s when anxiety takes over your life and you can’t do anything except watch it destroy your life.

People often tell me to “just do it”. Anxiety isn’t “just doing it” or it wouldn’t even be a condition. I find everything difficult, from engaging in social activity, to simply going somewhere by myself. I can’t justΒ get over my anxiety. It takes years for someone to get anxiety and a lot of the time, we can’t get over it. People just don’t seem to understand why I get anxious about certain situations and so they keep on making me feel anxious, and when I’m anxious, I’m also sad, which isn’t very good.

Anxiety can be rational or irrational and, to be honest, mine is pretty much almost entirely irrational. Β I can’t help them being irrational and I can’t stop thinking them but I can try and deal with them, which is something I’m currently unable to do because these irrational thoughts are at an all-time high! I have them about 9828032832 times a day haha… but sometimes they are triggered and sometimes they are not. The times they aren’t triggered are when I should try and suppress them but I don’t know how. I can’t just not think them, you know? If they’re triggered, they’re even less easy to suppress because the scenario is right there in front of me.

I really want to overcome my anxiety but I think that it’s not going to lessen at the current time because of the stressful situations I have to go to every day. This morning I felt like I couldn’t breathe because it was so bad but I got over it, eventually. But that was only temporary; to permanently clear my anxiety is more of a fantasy than a reality because I really don’t know how I can ever do it.

Does anyone have any advice?

Thank you so much for reading this post,

Lia

  1. I know how your feeling. Since October anxiety seemed to control my life. I was too scared to do a simple thing like going to sleep. Recently it has been happening less and less and I think it has to do with finding ways to cope with it. I don’t know if that was helpful at all. Everyone’s situation is different.

  2. I have no advice sorry ;c – but I hope you can overcome it one step at s time, it might help to do little things at first and then gradually do bigger things to help overcome it βœ¨πŸ’•

  3. – 7/11 breathing
    – find a phrase that you can just repeat over and over in your head in anxious moments e.g. ‘everything is fine’ or ‘I can do this’
    – distract yourself with music (or tosπŸ˜‚)
    – think of a moment you overcame this before and remind yourself that you can do it again

    yeah my advice sucks because it doesn’t always work but hey it might sometimes πŸ™‚ πŸ’œ
