Sometimes we hit this point in life where we just think that life has just become too much for us. We often hit these points at times where we are suffering very high levels of stress as we worry that we can’t get through it. But, the human body was not designed to take in this much stress if it could not cope with filtering and dealing with it. Sure, we all have those moments where we feel like we can’t deal with it but the truth is that if it’s physically possible, it can be done. Humans have the ability to take on lots of responsibility at once. It’s the same with anxiety. We take on a lot of it at once but sometimes we stop dealing with it when we feel like it’s become too much.
There have been times in my life recently where I have felt like I have taken on too much and I wanted to just give it all up. But, I reached a point where I realised that if I was able to take it all on, I would be able to filter it all out. Eventually, I was able to cope with what was going on and I could begin to live my life the way I intended to. I felt amazing after this. I could finally go back to the way I wanted to be. I will always suffer from anxiety but I know that no matter how hard it gets, I can do it. We all can.
The point I’m trying to make is that no matter how hard things feel like they’re getting, there is always a way out. You can do this. People used to tell me that all the time and I never used to believe them because of how cliche the saying was, I listened but I was never able to comprehend what they were saying. I dismissed it, purely because of how much I heard the saying before. There was no easy way to go through it and there was certainly no easy way to listen to someone who I believed wasn’t helping me.
I could sit here and explain how difficult my life was while I was going through this stage of my life or I could do something useful and help someone to understand that when a time like this arrives in life, there are people and methods we can use to assist us to recover. Personally, I was good at pretending that everything was okay whilst I allowed my mind to filter through everything that was going while I received a little help and support from those around me.
Just remember, there is always a person or a technique that can be used for support
