Episode 12: Anxiety & Depression, How I Battle Mine
Listen, we've all got something. Even Kim Kardashian wakes up on days and doesn't feel 100% happy. One of the reasons I hate social media (most of the time) is because you don't get to truly see what people are dealing with behind the scenes. I can't tell you the amount of days I wake up and feel sad, or empty, and I'm not afraid to say that. As I get older, I realize how important being honest with myself is. It's not my friends, my boyfriend, or my families fault when I don't feel 100%. I'm tailored to be this way, and I can't control it. How can you be honest with someone else if you aren't being honest with yourself? I have spent a lot of time worrying about my body, and the way I look, because I wasn't confident in myself or my ability to succeed. Talking to my therapist every week helps me remind myself to stay on track, and not get caught up in the noise, when it frequently sounds easier said than done. YOU determine your happiness, and you may have to be honest with yourself and reach out for help in order to get your anxiety or depression under control. I PROMISE you it gets better.
