There is always some good in the bad. So I am trying to look at the little things that are good in the world. And this is one of them. So I saw this post a while back and I thought it was cute. But I just recently found it again and it got me thinking, that we should take this thing that we will have for all of our lives and turn it into something positive. With my anxiety it gives me the thoughts that no one likes me and of course panic attacks. That’s the bad side. The good side is that I have always been able to read people really well. Like if they are upset or don’t want to talk and just want to sit in silence for a while. This has helped me in a few situations. My mom says I am very accepting of people cause I bring home the “strays”. I just accept people for who they are because you don’t know what they have going on in their life, and a little kindness can go a long way. I also know what it feels like to be completely alone and I don’t think anyone should go through that alone so I will listen if they need someone to vent to. Which that has also got me into some odd situations, which kind of freaked me out but it worked out in the end. I could keep going and list so many good qualities people who I know who have anxiety have but that would take forever. The main point of this is that anxiety is the bad angel sitting on your shoulder that you didn’t ask for and you are stuck with it for the rest of your life. It might take awhile, it took me over, three years to come to terms with it and then another two to openly talk about it and see the positive in it. One of the reasons why I started this blog is to help people and let people see that anxiety sucks. A lot. But it doesn’t have to rule your life.
