Hey there, it’s ok

This one is for all of you out there that know how anxiety and its disorders feel like.

For all of you out there, that are like me. There are things that we should hear more often, and that’s what this post is all about!

  • It’s hard. Eveyday is hard. Some days more than others. And no matter how easy you make it seem to the outsiders, it’s hard.
  • You’re amazing just for keeping up and keep going with this heavy weight inside your mind!
  • You feel broken sometimes. It’s ok, you’re fine, after all, who isn’t broken (even a bit)?!
  • Definitely you have thought that you’re some kind of problematic human being, even some kind of monster. You’re not, you’re just a human being, and not everyone could handle things in such a great way!
  • Keep going. Always. It’s worth it.
  • Those days that you want the world to stop? Pause, take your time. Relax, eat your favorite food, do nothing if you need to, do whatever it’s good for you. But, never go against your own self, it’s just a bad day. It’s fine, everything and everyone will be there after your short break and better days are going to come!
  • You know you’re a fighter that is surviving his/her own mind, right? How amazingly courageous is that?!
  • You feel fragile, because you are and there’s nothing wrong with that.
  • I know how it feels, we are many, many, many out there. We know. We feel. And we keep going!

Being afraid

You definitely know that little voice inside your head telling you that things might go wrong, that you might be rejected, that something bad might happen, etc, etc.

Yes, I’m talking about being afraid. No, this isn’t a post about anxiety and OCD. It’s about all these times that you, and I, and everyone else is afraid to do something or is afraid that something bad will happen.

Feeling fear, listening to that stupid little voice inside your head is definitely unpleasant. There come moments when “recordings” of past experiences and thoughts are activated inside our minds, and they start messing with our reality. They wake up all the fear and the insecurities (and they throw parties inside your head).

There are many moments when I, myself, think that “I am afraid”.

Yes I am, I’m afraid of things happening or of things not happening, I’m scared that things might go wrong and I’m fucking afraid (to terrified) to try things and go for the things I want.

What I usually do is be kind to myself, think a bit of my fear, think about how much do I want something. And then take a breath, take myself by the hand and go for it!

After all, in life, you can never be sure about many things. Actually, there are less than few things that you can be sure about. Call it flow of things, uncertainty, life, whatever suits you!

And are you willing to lose things because of the fear inside your head?

I know I’m not.
