One year ago this month, I started this blog for my social media class. We could create any kind of blog we wanted. I chose to focus on my anxiety, as well as anxiety in general.
I was someone who hated talking to people. I was never comfortable talking about myself, and my personal struggles. Honestly, I hated talking to people in general. In my head, they were judging me for everything and anything.
I used this blog as a way to talk about my personal struggles, as well as a way to share different ways I handle my anxiety. My goal for this blog, was to give me an outlet, a way to express myself, without feeling judged. However, I was so happy that other people found hope and help from my blog posts. It was so nice to chat with others who are also struggling. We are not alone, and we should never feel that way.
Now that it’s been a whole year, I am feeling a lot better about myself and my life. I finally found the courage to ask for help and I am finally starting to get more self confidence. Don’t get me wrong, I am still struggling daily with my anxiety. I am still constantly worrying about everything, and still struggling to stop my mind when I am trying to sleep. But, I am more happy. I seem to be in a better mood during the day, and I am more comfortable doing things I normally wouldn’t be able to do. I have started working out on a daily basis, and it has done a lot for my self-esteem and my daily life.
A year ago today, I never imagined this is where my life would be. I know I will be continuing on this journey for the rest of my life, but I am finally better at accepting that. I hope everyone realizes how much your life has changed in 365 days. And no matter how bad it may seem, I promise you, there has been some good in your life.
So I challenge you all to focus on the good and improving your daily life, by taking it one day at a time. Focus on the present, it’s really the only thing you can control!
Until Next Time!
