Whether you are the one who suffers from chronic fear and worry or if your significant other suffers from it, the effects can be devastating. Anxiety is emotionally draining for both of you.
Find someone who is not afraid of the darkness, but someone who will be your light.
Watch a ridiculous but perfect T.V. show like Gossip Girl or One Tree Hill. Catch yourself reciting the lines. Wish the show had never ended.
The more you try to drown out the thoughts, the louder they come. And they multiply! Until it’s wave upon wave of panic crashing against the dilapidated wall you’d put up in your mind, slowly wearing away the strategies you had gathered for moments like this.
Whether anxiety is a frequent or seldom visitor, it has the power to leave you exhausted, scared, and paralyzed.
It’s the feeling that someone is always mad at you. Even if you can’t come up with a single reason why, you are sure you MUST have done something wrong.
Worriers, we are strong. We are powerful.
