Forgiving Myself

Forgiving Myself

Can we talk about forgiveness for a second? I don’t mean the kind of forgiveness we seek when someone has done us wrong or when we have a fight with a loved one. I mean the kind that we give to ourselves. I made some resolutions this year concerning my health and even joined a weight loss group on Facebook to keep me going (and then made my own).

What Anxiety Is Like

What Anxiety Is Like

Anxiety is like you’re constantly getting closer to the top of a roller coaster,

but you never feel the rush of going down.

 

Anxiety is like being nervous about a big test or an interview or a speech,

but the feeling never goes away after it’s over.

but constantly feeling like something is wrong.

 

Anxiety is like running through a dark forest to get away from something,

but you never see what is chasing you.

Anxiety is feeling like you forgot something when you have everything,

but you continue to worry.

 

Anxiety is feeling your stomach drop when you miss a step on a staircase,

but you never regain your footing.

 

Anxiety is feeling like every hair on the back of your neck is standing up,

but there is nothing around to frighten you.

 

Anxiety is feeling like everything is always out of your control,

but everything is actually fine.

Anxiety is asking your significant other if they love you, are they sure, for the millionth time,

because you need the reassurance.

 

Anxiety is asking your friends to confirm plans over and over again,

even though you never doubted them.

 

Anxiety is knowing you have no reason to feel so anxious,

but you can’t stop feeling that way.

 

Anxiety is knowing you are falling through the air,

but you’re not sure when you’ll hit the ground.
