A brief post about an important subject

I want to bring something to your attention. Something that's been circling around in my mind lately.

But first, answer this:

Do you know anyone with anxiety? 
If not, do you know someone who gets anxious often? Or someone who doesn't get anxious often, but when they do get anxious it's somewhere along the lines of a full blow anxiety attack?

Chances are you do, as anxiety is essentially an emotion. And humans feel emotions all the time. 

I am not what you would call someone with "an anxiety disorder." I haven't been told I have anxiety, I don't take anxiety meds, nor do I have frequent panic attacks. But I do know one things, 
I get anxious. 

Sometimes, very anxious. Sometimes often.

And as someone who can be very anxious, I speak from experience when I say that people with anxiety never get tired of hearing these things: 

  • I'm here for you
  • I love you
  • I value you as person
  • Things like "I'll go with you if it's too scary" 
  • Your feelings are valid
  • Your opinions matter to me
Anxiety often leaves people feeling alone, unwanted, and unloved, and it's a million times easier for someone to convince us that that's false than for our own brains to.

I don't know exactly how many of you can relate to this, but my hope for this post is to make people aware of this subject.  

So apply this to real life if you can. Even if you don't know someone with anxiety, maybe text or email one of the things listed above to someone who you think could benefit from hearing it. 

That's it for today guys! :) Keep a look out for a writing type post coming later in the week. 

Love you all, and thanks for reading!

  1. I don't really get anxious much, but I will now be more aware of it. That song has a good beat!:)

  2. Ouch, anxiety. I have a friend who has anxiety issues, and it's hard for her because even though she appears outgoing, she cannot sing in front of everyone for choir (which is the class that we share) and often times, I have to help drag her back to reality, since she feels unloved at times. I love the song! Alex's voice has a great quality. ^.^

    xoxo Morning
