Stress, anxiety, what ever you want to call it is, for me, one of the worst feelings in the world. I’m not talking about anxiety disorders, I’m talking about the stress that every person will feel at some point in their lives.
As terrible as anxiety disorders are, this post will not be about them as, to be honest, I have no experience with them. However, just because a person does not have anxiety doesn’t mean that they cant feel anxious. As mental awareness has gone up, it seems that those everyday worries and troubles have become less of a big deal. And to some they are lesser, but this doesn’t mean that they should be ignored. Whatever is a big deal to you still counts as a big deal, even if it seems insignificant to everyone else.
Find someone you trust. explain to them what’s happening. Please take my advice when I say – find someone you can truly trust. someone sympathetic and comforting. Nothing is worse than someone who will make you feel terrible for feeling the way you do.
Whether you have exams or problems at work or just general stress, please take some time to look after yourself and calm down. Meditate or read a book or do anything that makes you feel good.
Basically, this was just to let you know that it’s okay to feel anxious or sad or stressed, even if your reason to is small. Sometimes we just feel down, and that’s okay.
