My anxiety has been suffocating lately..
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.
