Saturday, the 24th

My anxiety has been suffocating lately.. 

all consuming. 

It wraps around me tightly, painfully, yet passionately. 

Like a toxic lover, it holds me in a morbid but gentle embrace.

We become so used to the comfort of our pain and traumas that anything but constant discomfort and anguish frightens us. 

I think the reason why my anxiety has been heightened is because I’m actively working on my mental health. A sort of sick ‘needs to get worse before it gets better.’ 

While bad, I’ve been able to breathe through the doubts and anxiousness by reminding myself of how powerful I am. I breathe and breathe until I realize that most of it are irrational fears, unnecessary stress. 

Life is all-encompassing.

Beautiful, yet monstrous. 

Dark, but light.

Cold, and still gentle.

We are supposed to feel, but we choose to not let unnecessary thoughts win.

We are strong. 

Happy Saturday.
