“It can’t be that bad if you socialise”
“I get nerves all the time so I know how you feel”
Don’t confuse nerves with anxiety.
High functioning anxiety is a thing.
Anxiety isn’t just feeling anxious. Anxiety isn’t just nerves. Anxiety isn’t just overthinking with a bit of panic. It’s not just worry... it’s a mental illness with awful physical symptoms and I think we often forget that about anxiety.
Anxiety itself is a normal response to life but when it becomes constant, irrational and life consuming is when it becomes a problem.
I can function (most of the time) with my anxiety. It stops me from doing things from time to time but I can generally socialise when I want. This doesn’t mean I don’t suffer from anxiety. Anxiety affects more in my life than just my social life. I can be perfectly fine one second and then dizzy, nauseous, trembling and paralysed with fear the next over irrational things. I’ve suffered with anxiety since childhood and my ability to hide it and appear unfazed has grown with me and whilst that’s helped me in life it’s also exhausting as it feels like I’m living a double life.
Anxiety isn’t just nerves.
Anxiety doesn’t just present itself in worry.
Anxiety is normal at appropriate times and doesn’t mean you have anxiety as a mental illness.
Anxiety doesn’t mean someone can’t socialise.
Tb to when I met an actual angel. @bodyposipanda

you’ll tell me that i’m nothing without you and that i’m better dead
(i’ll still cry about it over a year later, but it’s okay. i’ll still love you)
you’ll leave bruises on my heart and my ribs and my soul and my shoulders
(it’ll hurt and it’ll ache for the longest time, inside and out, but it’s okay. i’ll still love you)
you’ll have me choking on my tears and my blood and your hand that you’ve got wrapped around my fucking throat
(oh god i can’t fucking breathe and you’ll be killing me, but it’s okay. i’ll still love you).
(it’s not okay. it was never okay. but i love you anyway)
2928 - So much to share with you guys! Been super quiet in social media, it’s hard to put everything I’m currently going thru into words so I stopped communicating all together ...but after today I will make the effort to share so you may benefit from the changes in my life.
Embracing change has brought a newfound strength into my life and surprisingly, more inner peace. I should probably be very stressed out with life ...we have a lot going on but I am not ... Change has become my greatest teacher and I am learning a lot from it.
I also made changes to my training and nutrition. I am training hard, lifting heavy and feeling every rep with mind, muscle , body and everything connection lol. I am still drinking my greens everyday but I am eating a lot more quantities of fruits and veggies, still no meat, it’s been almost 5 months without eating any meat. I choose whole grains I always do brown rice instead of white, I choose lean proteins like fish, beans, and legumes, I cut down on processed foods, sugar, salt, artificial sweeteners and saturated fat..
I am also exploring meditation, yoga to improve my mental and spiritual health and I will share more about this in the months coming up!

🇪🇸 ¡Tengo mucho por compartir! He estado súper tranquila en las redes sociales, es difícil poner todo lo que actualmente estoy pasando en palabras, así que casi he dejado de comunicarme ... pero voy a hacer esfuerzo de compartir para que tb podáis beneficiaros de los cambios en mi vida.
Aceptar estos cambios han traído una nueva fuerza en mi vida y, sorprendentemente, una mayor paz interior. Probablemente debería estar muy estresada con la vida ahora mismo ... tenemos muchas cosas por lo que estar últimamente pero no estoy ...
Este cambio se ha convertido en mi mejor maestro y estoy aprendiendo mucho de él.
