It’s taken a while for me to write this post, I’ve had the title saved but just couldn’t bring myself to write. I share a lot on this blog but even I feel that some things are a little too personal. However, I feel that this topic is important and I know that there must be others out there that feel the same way. So, here goes…
Sometimes I feel really worthless.
I know that it’s my mental state that is causing me to feel this way but it doesn’t really help. I’m often unable to do things that I want to because I know my anxiety isn’t ready. This year I have decided not to push myself too much and to understand and respect my own limits. So when I feel like I have to say no to something I feel incredibly frustrated with myself.
Anxiety and depression tend to come hand in hand, however they’re not widely acknowledged as being connected. Therefore, when you have days when you’re feeling depressed you tend to think it’s something else that’s wrong with you – rather than just viewing it as a side effect of your anxiety.
As my anxiety improves I know my self-worth and confidence will increase too. However, for now I have to just get through it.
Share your stories below if you feel the same way so that I know I’m not alone!
I find that escaping to Pinterest and reading through the inspirational quotes really helps.
How do you get through it when you’re feeling like this?
