Yesterday was a really tough day for me. My anxiety was through the roof and it was making me physically sick. I had a panic attack for the first time in over a year and it was horrible.
You can read about my experience with anxiety HERE. It’s something I’ve been dealing with for about 5 years now and something I’ve worked so hard to overcome. It’s discouraging when I have off days but I remind myself that it’s much less than it used to be.
Many people don’t realize how important mental health truly is. It is hard for them to understand that you are sick because you don’t look physically sick. It’s disheartening and makes us feel horrible about ourselves.
I felt so bad yesterday that I had to miss a class. I still feel guilty for skipping but after freaking out about it I realized that it’s okay.
It’s okay to feel bad every now and then. Life is not perfect and every day will not be perfect. You just have to accept that sometimes you need a day to let yourself sit and cry it out.
It’s okay to take a day for your mental health. It’s actually really important that you do. Although school is my biggest priority at the moment I’ve come to realize that sometimes you need to put your well-being before anything else.
It’s okay to be nervous sometimes and it’s okay to have a bad day. Just remember it is not okay once your anxiety starts preventing you from doing everyday things all of the time.
It’s okay to reach out to someone for help! I know I would still be a wreck if I never went to therapy. Talk to someone before your anxiety takes over your life.
It’s okay to be unsure. Just remember, eventually you WILL be okay!
Have a wonderful Wednesday xo
