Anxiety isn’t cute. It isn’t a trend. It isn’t something you want.
Anxiety drowns you. Sometimes you can’t breathe. Sometimes you can’t eat. Sometimes it wakes you when you’re sleeping, or keeps you from closing your eyes altogether. Sometimes you feel like you’re under water. Sounds get louder and smells get stronger and people get closer. Walls lean towards you and your heart beats so loud in your chest and your ears and your stomach that the echo becomes unbearable.
Anxiety isn’t a game. It is genuine, life or death situation panic. It is the feeling of missing the last step and falling into nothingness, but lasts for an eternity. It wakes the demons in the night and shatters them against our brains.
Anxiety isn’t cute. It is very real. And it isn’t something we brag about. It is something we hide, because it tells us we are broken.
Anxiety and depression are very real. I am not a professional. Please reach out and get help. You deserve happiness and health.
