“To Open Up To Others About Your Anxiety Isn’t To Dig Yourself A Bigger Hole, But To Take Advice Based On Experience And To Inspire Others In The Process.”
The stigma on mental health is alive and kicking, we all know that. Thankfully the anxiety recoverers and life coaches that are changing the world today are looking past the status quo and are doing things much different then the ones who continue to suffer. One part of that difference is to open up to others about your anxiety, in a way that helps and not harms.
You’re not looking for a shoulder to lean on. Instead, you’re looking to release repressed energy and connect at a deeper level
The ones who understand your inner challenges will treat you the way you were meant to be treated. That means to understand your transition into a new you, and empathetically give you advice that keeps you on your chosen path. The ones who don’t understand your journey will treat you like you’re sick. Sometimes they’re not to blame for this either, as ignorance and a lack of experience with anxiety can cause this disconnect.
You should open up to others about your anxiety because it’ll show you that you’re priority #1. Pleasing others takes a back seat on this journey towards ending your anxiety. And to be honest, when was the last time you put yourself first anyway? Could that be the main reason you’re here with these challenges? That’s something to ponder right here and right now.
“Nothing will change until you defy your child mind. The one telling you who to be and what not to do.”
