LET’S GET SERIOUS FOR A MINUTE...ANXIETY
it’s a scary thing to say the least, and it’s something that I thought I would never go through.
yesterday was the toughest day for me, all I wanted to do was enjoy my day and I ended up having a breakdown.
I wanted to understand why this was happening to me, what’s the reasoning?
sometimes there isn’t a particular reason.
I decided to watch a TED TALK this morning about it and I found it to be extremely knowledgeable (I always love learning about what other people have been through and their knowledge on certain subjects.) The speaker listed these helpful techniques for when you’re experiencing anxiety: ”do it wrong” meaning everyone thinks that they have to do EVERY. SINGLE. THING. perfect every time, even if it’s something new. do it wrong, and learn from your mistakes.
”forgive yourself” forgive yourself if you have a breakdown, if you have a bad day, if you’re aren’t feeling your best.
”everyone has a purpose” this one is a big one for me, and had the most impact. having purpose and knowing what you want to do makes your days so much better.
I wanted to share these tips with you because I know that anxiety can be a common thing, especially among young people. sharing the struggles and hard times is so much more important and authentic then putting on a mask on social media.
I want to be my most authentic self for you guys, and I hope this post helped at least a few of you
