Default Beating my anxiety, maybe?

Today I had an interesting feeling. For the first time, I felt in control of my anxiety. I could hear the worry thoughts but I didn't want to run from them like I used to. I could hear my negative thoughts in my mind. But I was able to co-exist with them and not let them push me around.

It's almost like I was standing up to a bully. It felt great. And I hope I can keep this up.

Sometimes, it's the little things in life

Yay! That's amazing, it's really hard to practice controlling anxiety after letting it control you for so long.

I've built it up to a lifestyle where I do things I enjoy and things I know will help me calm down in order to keep my anxiety in check. It's a struggle and sometimes I do lose to it, but I don't stop.

Keep going!
