Happiness, when you have anxiety, feels like failure. Because rather than enjoying it, all you can think about is how you’re doing it wrong. Something that should be so intrinsic, so instinctual, can feel like such a challenge to you. A burden. A strain.

Remember that you’re still you, and that while you are fighting this, you’re getting stronger every day. Each little tiny thing that you do says so much more than you realize – getting out of bed is brave, going to work is brave, asking for help is brave, taking a step back when you need to is brave. Existing, in spite of your anxiety, is brave.

Date someone who terrifies you because they pull a truthful, genuine, unaffected version of yourself out of you that no one has ever seen before.
