Anxiety is a toddler

When you think about anxiety… you think about mental illness. you think about nervousness. you think about panic attackst… you think about not breathing. What you never think about is the fact that anxiety acts like a toddler.

Seriously, think about it.

I mean if you have ever been around a toddler for any length of time. Think about it.

Toddlers never stop talking and neither does your anxiety. Your brain is constantly running. Pointing out all of the bad things that could happen, that could possibly happen or that will probably happen. Thought after thought after thought and it never ends.

Toddlers are always telling you that you are wrong or telling you no. Dear goodness do toddlers love the word no. So anxiety is always telling you that you are wrong. You think you’re fine…you’re wrong. You think you’re doing good, you’re wrong. You think you’re having a good day…you’re wrong. Or your anxiety is always telling you no. You wanna go out with your friends, No. You wanna try something new, no. You want to go for a run, no.

Toddlers like to wake you up whenever you least expect it. or keep you up til 2 am. which completely sucks when you have a kid in school that you have to get them up and ready and to school by 7:30… it is pretty rough. Well anxiety likes to do the same. It can keep you up til all hours of the night thinking about things that you either did wrong that day or will do wrong tomorrow.

Anxiety sucks.

Seriously

it sucks.

Anxiety can be a battle, but you don't have to go it alone. Plus I like to cook, take photographs and review shows
