Often times anxiety has a way of making me feel trapped. While I’m able to do things, anxiety can trick me into feeling as if the opposite is true. Sometimes the fog surrounding anxiety can be so thick that’s it’s hard to allow voices of reason in, such as my father trying his hardest to help me. Sometimes the fog is so thick that it’s hard to even hear my own voice telling myself that I CAN get through my anxiety. On one hand, I feel as if I want to flee the situation that causes my anxiety, but on the other hand, I feel as if fleeing will only cause more anxiety. However, I KNOW that I’m stronger than my anxiety!
