Through this blog I’ve been randomly posting things and feelings, and each time I overcome something I feel like I want to come here and tell you. If you read here often you’ll know that I struggled with anxiety for quite some time and that it had gotten really bad at a certain point in 2012/early 2013, but I’ve been slowly letting things go one at a time. As a result I feel like I’m lifting off layers of my anxieties.
This time last year I didn’t even like going to stay in different cities because I was scared to sleep over somewhere that wasn’t my house, but I pushed myself to do things and kinda threw myself in at the deep end in February ‘13 with an opportunity I just couldn’t miss. Since then I’ve taken steps to overcome an absolute huge load of my nervousness and managed to get on a plane and get myself on holiday for the first time in 10 years (without fear!… well, a little fear at first but it soon passed!)
Don’t get me wrong, I still have worries and a little way to go to get back to my old self, but I really feel that this is a great way to get past anxieties, little things one at a time, you’re not gonna be cured of it overnight because someone tells you to stop worrying, you have to want to do it yourself and really do things that scare you, the things you’re running away from - run right at them. Life is precious, and I need to start living mine!
