Anxiety is one of the most silent and lonely mental illnesses around. Most of the time you don’t even know what is going on in your own head and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it, all you can do it suffer inside of your own head. Some people will not know what this feels like because they have a lot of support around them whereas others have no or little support.
I think since struggling with anxiety it makes you a lot more aware of everyone around you and you notice a lot more because you know what it is like to struggle. For me personally, I think it makes you open your eyes more and actually take note more of the things and people around you, especially when someone looks like they’re struggling and they look alone you go to them and give them the support they need.
Leading on from that, the thing with mental health illnesses is it isn’t easy to ask for help or get the support you much need because it isn’t like a physical illness that you can’t see the physical symptoms whereas mental health illnesses you can’t see the physical symptoms of it, because it is mostly in your head or a lot of people bottle it up so it doesn’t look like they’re struggling.
Some days when living with anxiety you feel like you can not accomplish anything, you feel it completely defeats you and a lot of the time you don’t even know why you are getting defeated by the smaller things. But other days we take things in our stride and we are able to accomplish more than we ever thought we could and we should be proud of ourselves.
We will not let our anxiety take over us and define who we are. We are more than our mental health illnesses. Some days it feels as if there is a storm over you and you can’t see the bright side of the day. Whereas other days the sky is clear and we can see everything bright as day and we accomplish everything.
I saw a post on Instagram the other day about anxiety, which I thought I would share it with you all. It’s from an Instagram page called health_anxiety, which posts loads of different things which relate to mental health and anxiety.
