Honestly, sometimes I think this to myself. I worry that my blog is just me saying the same thing over and over just in a different way. When the media publishes a story, every company does it differently but they’re all talking about the same thing which brings me to believe that they’re all repeating themselves. Is it the same when one person is always writing? Honestly, I’m not too sure. I feel like I do talk a lot about my feelings which causes me to think that I just say the same stuff but in a different way and, that got me thinking. Isn’t that just what anxiety is?
Now, I’ve done a lot of thinking about that statement and I have come to the conclusion that my anxiety is very repetitive and that has helped me to learn how to control it. Usually, I start to suffer once I am in a large crowd of people out in public or, I’m in a new situation that I’m not certain how to take control of. I have managed to learn how to do that because I can figure out the signs of what is going on. This is really useful for me because it means I can avoid any unnecessary panic and help others learn how they can avoid it in the future.
Unfortunately, this does not mean that I am anxiety-free, but, it does make me proud to be a sufferer. Now, I can tell that a bunch of you are frowning at your screens re-reading what you just read but I can assure you that I mean it. I am proud to be able to say that I am able to prevent myself from suffering when I don’t need to.
There is never an easy way for a person to ‘overcome’ or ‘defeat’ their anxiety, negative thoughts, or emotions but there is always a way to do it. It isn’t always easy, in fact, it never will be but just know that there is always a way to do it. It could be the toughest thing you’ve ever done in your life but, like I’ve said before, if the human was built to take on this amount of stress then it can get rid of it and overcome it. You can do it. It sounds patronising, I know but it’s true.
A short one today, but it was something that I really needed to address. If I sound repetitive, I’m sorry but maybe there is a reason behind it.
