How have anxiety changed you?
I think I am a different person than I would be without it. As a healthy child I used to be sovereign. I was sure of myself in a good way. I was talkative and friendly. Purly extraverted. I wasn’t nosy, but neightbourly. I didn’t come to the show, I was the show with my non-agressive social skills. There are only good references on my behaviour. ... After an ocd, bullying in school, quick phase of anorexia and constant anxiety - my self-esteem went straight way down. For a long time I wasn’t able to communicate the way I am born to. I thought: I am not worth it, look at me: I am just a huge mess. I became more shy and hardly I can connect with new people. I know how betrayal tastes. Not only from others, but from your mind as well. However, probably you read about Tim’s story few posts back. He partly got rid of an cloud covering my natural self-esteem. But I still am not the same. - To also be postivie: it is needed to say that I am more compassionate (I was even before but now show me the person with a struggle and the hug is coming), more sensitive to what I hear and what I say, more giving, because I know how it feels to be lost. I am so grateful for that. And finally: deffinitely more stronger. I am a bloody warrior, babe. And so are you. . . . .
