“Anxiety is your overprotective best friend, you can tell her/him it’s going to be okay”. I hope this can help anybody out there who sometimes leads a life of unfortunate anxiety or overthinks. Try put this into practice for yourself.
I ask of you – Stop living in the past, it is proven to cause pain and depression. Stop living in the future, it causes anxiety and unnecessary uncertainty and pressure. So please try love and live in your present, this is the most important part of life you can conquer.
I myself have struggled following this ideology of living only in the present and I can completely relate to how hard it can be to choose to lead your life this way, nothing great comes easily. But I promise you, it helps.
Whether this comes from fear of the future, the now or the past then always have faith in yourself and your own abilities. You are amazing and you are in control.
It’s a battle that I have only recently in the last few years become aware of within myself. Maybe it’s because I have so much I want to achieve and I am finally stepping towards making the necessary changes. It has been a sort of unresolved feeling that lingers and creates a shot of doubt at any given moment, I find this has been the hardest part – not always recognising the issue or not being able to tap into your subconscious.
So I call her my friend, anxiety is my friend. I am able to control the situation by talking to ‘her’ and telling her that everything is going to be okay. It’s a moment of pure release from the feeling that comes from anxiety and all together allows you to gather your feelings to start to interpret them in a much more clear and effective way – for you.
Tips to help you…
1. Write your feelings down in a diary or blog
2. Talk to friends and family
3. Tell ‘her’ or ‘him’ it’s going to be okay
4. Create a vision/mood board of your dreams and plant them where you can easily see them everyday
Your path is your own, you write and create it. Always remember you are in control…
