Anxious Paralysis

Have you been paralyzed by fear? For the past 2 weeks I have been paralyzed by fear and it has caused me so much anxiety all I have wanted to do is lay down and just sit in the silence…have you ever felt that way?

I have lost hours worrying about the future and being so scared to fail that I have literally lost hours to just laying on the floor unable to get up and take action. There are so many things I want to accomplish and I know I can do it. I have proven time and time again to myself that I am so much more capable than my mind tells me, but at this current moment I can’t see the fucking tree through the forest…no light at the end of the tunnel just a bundle of anxiety that keeps me from doing literally anything. Getting up is hard, brushing my teeth is hard and just getting motivated to get my shit done has been the struggle of a lifetime. I know this will past but right now it feels like I will be stuck in these feelings for the rest of my life. No amount of medication or coping skills has helped, but I keep trying and I’m not going to let this take over my life.

 We can do anything we set our minds to so it’s up to us to ensure we don’t let the voices in our head overshadow the tiny part of us that knows we have everything we need right now at this current moment. Write down how you feel, list out everything you’re grateful for, write over and over that you will be okay and just know that feelings are temporary and can change in a split second so just keep fighting.
