Owing to social anxiety, i refrain from going out and about when majority of the people are out. I thought of going for a walk today and boy was that the most anxious walks in a while. I had my earphones in so i couldnt hear anything, couldnt think anything. With every person that passed me , i wanted to run and hide somewhere. All i could think of was, they are looking at me,they are judging me, They can see right through me. That, my people is dealing with anxiety on a daily. The first thing i did when i got home was practice deep breaths, Write a gratitude list and write a future self journal. I took time to really feel whatever i was feeling, being judged, shame, guilt, low self esteem and then asked myself questions that made me think of what could have triggered that anxiety. I validated my feelings. All feelings are there for a reason.Honor them amd let them go. It feels silly now when i am much better but in the moment, the struggle is real. I hope this gives someone not dealing with anxiety a fresh perspective and someone dealing with it, hope. :)
