    When your anxiety can’t let you make a decent title #Anxiety

    As I try to begin writing this thought/post, I couldn’t even come up with a decent title. Tells you how deep anxiety goes when you can’t even write a title for your thoughts. But still here I am writing a post, my first post/thought.

    I’ve been dealing with anxiety all my life but I never knew what it was until I was in graduate school. I thought I always always weird or just someone who talks way too much. But then feel like why did I say all of that stuff, especially to people I don’t know. Or, why do I try so hard to interact with people and/or like me. That’s when I found out, I have social anxiety and just in general. I’ve probably tossed away relationships and friendships without realizing it. But, I try to not let it control me. Don’t get me wrong, some days are worse than others. But, I try to start each day like a new one and try to control my while it doesn’t control me. My goal I guess now in life is to just be there for others who suffer as well and just lend an ear and let them know that “hey! I deal with this too! How can I be there for you?” Just being able to listen and understand what that person is dealing with can help in so many ways. That’s why I think I need to start just advocating that mental illness is not something to belittle or throw away, it’s something we as humans deal with. I also want to be there for others in a big way as well and just open something, a FB Page, a website, or something just to be there for people that I know personally, or someone who’s looking for help. To me, my isn’t who I am, but it’s apart of me and just something I have to overcome. But I know one thing is for sure, it won’t control my life or my destiny #Anxiety #OvercomeAnxity
