Freedom in acknowledgement 

Over this past year, I have learned that admittingI have an anxiety disorder to others, as well as myself, has created a sense of freedom and lightness within my emotional wellbeing. I have always been ashamed of my struggle because I was under the impression that others would think I was weird or broken in someway. However, I am finding that everyone has a hidden the struggle and people tend to be accepting of them.

I don’t recommend going around telling everyone you meet your secrets, but if the time is right and the relationship is secure, I believe it is ok to open up about your struggles. The support I have gained, and the amount of people who have admitting the same struggles, has been overwhelming and wonderful! 

Remember, you are not alone in your fight! We are in this together!

  1. I’ve also found that when I finally get the gumption to talk about it that there are so many other people out there who have dealt with it as well. No one seems to talk about it, but so many people have dealt with anxiety disorders or panic attacks. It’s encouraged me to talk about it because I learn that I’m not the “freak” I thought I was. Telling people has helped me to heal.

  2. Thank you for this reminder. I had a severe anxiety attack yesterday; however, being able to admit it to myself, my husband and the friend I was with at the time made it easier to deal with. It isn’t a cure, but it is definitely a step in the right direction!

  3. This is so true. My anxiety is usually the worst at work, because I feel trapped. I have opened up with several co-workers and found they suffer from anxiety as well. I feel more comfortable knowing that I have someone to talk to work when I need it.
