Day 3 of Seven Days of Self-love

Seven Days of Self-love (3)

Anxiety. I hate this shit!

I hate lying in bed awake with dry, burning eyes, because I’m sleep deprived, but my thoughts are running so rampantly that all I could do is lay there feeling anxious. Sometimes I can’t even pinpoint where the anxiety stems from. It’s like a light switch pops on some days and fucks my day up. I have been really struggling with my anxiety for a couple of years now. Sleepless nights and long tired days have become the norm for me.

At one point, I was becoming so anxious, that I didn’t want to do anything. I went to work and came back home; that’s it. I was just so paranoid and anxious being in a new city and meeting new people. But, that phase passed after about six months. I began meditation, crystal healing, did some soul searching and prayed harder than I’d ever had before. I decided I couldn’t live my life in a box. That had never been me. I had always been a person who enjoying going places and just having fun.

Negativity.

I just can’t deal with anything negative. I’ve learned to combat negativity with positivity and I had to change my way of thinking.  I had to learn to not take other people’s negativity personally, because it had nothing to do with me and more to do with them. I learned that in order to protect my peace, I had to part ways with all negative energy. Sometimes some of your closest friends and family members are that negative energy, that you shouldn’t allow in your space. I have to be particular who I allow to share my energy and space with.

In order to live a happy, stress free life I must keep my anxiety at bay and protect myself from negativity.

  1. Oh these definitely should have been on my list, too! LOL Anxiety is definitely horrible, especially when you don’t know the cause of it.
