It’s easier said than done.
Right now, there are a million scenarios running through your head, and each is clamoring for your attention. You can’t simply start thinking about something else by just commanding it. So don’t kid yourself into thinking that it’s all easy-peasy.
If you feel an anxiety attack is in the making, don’t ignore or downplay its effects.
What you can do though, is to not let it get the best of you.
Fighting with Anxiety
You have a lot of things to be concerned about. And your brain is making you count each and every one of them, showing you the worst of it all, and what could happen if you don’t make the right decision.
Breathe. Take the right measures to ensure that you don’t suffer too much from your anxiety attack. Don’t push yourself into thinking too much or too little. Just go slow and allow your brain to get the freedom it needs from your thoughts. Don’t beat yourself up just because you’re not able to overcome this. And most of all; don’t be your own worst enemy.
Don’t try to think that the world is going to judge you because you didn’t maintain a supposed aura of perfection. If you want to succeed in life, keep in mind that the only person you have to stand up for is yourself. And for yourself, you are perfect.
You don’t need to apologize for your humanness. It’s understandable that you may worry and think about being wrong or making mistakes too much. But take advice from the people you know and don’t allow it to guide you on the wrong path. Even if you feel like this is a weakness, don’t let it overwhelm you.
Doing Much More!
You may hate yourself for breaking down and crying in private because you can’t control something. But stop hating yourself for this. It’s okay to not let those moments define you when your anxiety gets you down. You may be standing in an environment where you feel that you aren’t needed, but remember. You are important.
Stay with those who understand that. Keep in mind that just as you’re focused under the stress of your own anxiety, so is everyone else. Talk to someone who understands your condition, and keep that person close. Surround yourself with those who will keep you stable.
Anxiety isn’t something that can go away with the wave of a magic wand. You must make the effort to teach yourself to not let it burden you. Free yourself from any mental traps that may be laid out to give you grief. Learn how to focus and manage under stress and most of all, repeat the mantra:
You are loved. You are needed. Your anxiety cannot change your importance in this world, and you will not let it.
