Anxiety is an exhausting b*tch. Let these quotes put it in its place.
When I was 7 years old and watching Field of Dreams at my grandparents' house, I sat bolt-up in bed.
It felt like my heart was going to explode. I was sure I was dying. I then realized everyone else around me would eventually die. I couldn't handle it. I started screaming.
When you've got an anxiety disorder it can feel like there's no escape. I've slapped my own face to try and get out of my own body when it gets to be too much: Trust, I get it.
I want to share with you a handful of the quotes that I have turned to in moments when anxiety was all "KNEEL B*TCH". (Homie don't kneel for no one, except maybe Beyonce.)
Maybe these sage words of wisdom guide you through the storm of anxiety.
If you're searching for the best quotes and memes to share with the people you love (or just want to feel inspired yourself) ... look no further! From the sweetest love quotes, inspirational sayings, and hilarious relationship truths, we've got you covered.
You're stronger than you know.
Life is tough but so are you.
There's Only One You
Your story is unique & so so different & and not worthy of comparison.
A plan can help
I will breathe. I will think of solutions. I will not let my worry control me. I will not let my stress level break me. I will simply breathe and it will be okay because I don't quit.
You can do this
Remember you were given this life because you're strong enough to live it.
My personal mantra
No amount of anxiety makes any difference to what will happen.
You can't control anyone but yourself
What other people think about you is none of your business. If you start to make that business your business, you'll be offended for the rest of your life.
A life line
Don't believe everything you think.
She was unstoppable. Not because she did not have failures or doubts, but because she continued on in spite of them.
Even if it doesn't feel that way
Everything is going to be okay.
They are just guests.
Feelings are just visitors, let them come and go.
No enough sheep in the world
Anxiety is not being able to sleep because you said something wrong two years ago and can't stop thinking about it.
You're a work in progress
I literally have to remind myself all the time, that being afraid of things going wrong isn't the way to make things go right.
Anxiety is when you care too much about everything. Depression is when you don't really care about anything. Having both is just like hell.
Be gentle with yourself, you're doing the best you can.
Anxiety is a lot like a toddler. It never stops talking, tells you you're wrong about everything, and wakes you up at 3am.
Ask for what you need
I need you to love me a little louder today.
Your feelings are valid
Telling someone with anxiety to just calm down is like telling someone with epilepsy to just stop having a seizure.
Of course you're tired
You don't know why you're exhausted? You're fighting a war inside your head every single day. If that's not exhausting I don't know what is.
You aren't alone
I over analyzed situations because I'm scared of what will happen if I don't.
