when I worry

I worry. A lot.

I know what it is like to have my brain go into overdrive and focus on minute details and not on the things that I should really be focusing on.

I’ve had panic attacks. I’ve lain in bed struggling to breathe as I cry my eyes out when moments before I was fine.

This is my life.

Some days are better than others. Some days are good and some days barely a moment goes by when I can’t feel the heaviness of my heart and I need to excuse myself from the world.

This is what I do when I can’t seem to exist in the world:

  • Take a bath
  • Drink an excessive amount of tea
  • Pray
  • Read something happy and light
  • Watch a rom-com or funny movie
  • Eat chocolate or candy
  • Let myself cry
  • Plan
  • Bake

All these things help me to relax, take my mind off the spiraling thoughts within, and let me refocus.

My days don’t always go as I expect them to, and my mind and body don’t always behave and work together, but I have learned how best to move forward and sometimes that takes a little time.

I deserve that time, and you deserve that time.
