So I’m a little late to the party on mental health awareness week sorry! I just didn’t really want to talk about it until now 🤷🏻♀️ but that’s my choice!
So on Sunday I found myself in a position that I’ve never been in before and it was pretty awful for me I won’t lie, I had my first ever panic attack in a public place but luckily for me there weren’t that many people around me to see it 😅 there’s a combination of factors that brought it on but mostly put down to anxiety and some body dysmorphia I guess? For me I’ve never had a panic attack in public and it was actually pretty scary to not be in a comfortable familiar place that I know and I’m with people I know, some people have to deal with that on a daily basis where as I only suffer from it once in a while now, it use to be a lot more frequent for me until I learned how to control my negative thoughts with meditating and mindfulness which I know most people mock and laugh it off but trust me, do it every day for a month and you’ll see how much your mental state improves!! 🙌🏼 When I feel those negative thoughts, feelings and fears come creeping back I always think about the amazing people around me that inspire me, the people I’ve lost emotionally and physically and the cool shit I’ve done and how scary some of that was to do and how I’ve over come all the other problems in my life so far that have been wayyyy harder than the moment I’m in right here right now!! ☺️ A lot of people are battling demons you have no idea about so be kind to everyone. Like the dahli Lama once said “be kind whenever it is possible, it is always possible” ☺️
P.s I had no photo to post with this so here’s me hugging the worlds biggest pineapple 🍍🤪
