I take a pill to help me through the day
I stay inside until I feel okay
– Ladyhawke, Anxiety
Hi, my name is Evan, and I’m anxious.
I don’t mean I’m nervous about publishing this post. Well, I am, but it’s not just that. What I’m talking about is…
Constant low-level fear, anxiety.
Freak out in a crowded supermarket, anxiety.
Hide in the bathroom while I have a panic attack, anxiety.
But you know what? In spite of this, I’m having the time of my life. That’s why I’m writing this blog – to show how good life with anxiety can be.
It’s a reminder, for the hard times, that it gets better. That when the storm passes, the sun comes out again.
I need reminding of this once in a while. Maybe you do too. I hope this helps.
Unfortunately, anxiety doesn’t go away. That’s not how it works. It’s part of who I am, and I’m okay with that. But I won’t let it take over.
I am more than my anxiety.
You are more than yours too.
There’s joy not far from here
I know there is
This isn’t everything you are
