My brain has been overflowing with thoughts on the irony of anxiety and its longterm effects on mental health. On one hand, it's given me a clear understanding of independence, space and open mindedness - Keys to bettering myself especially on the things I want out of life and treating others the way I'd like to be treated. On the other hand, it's been a lifelong struggle with social interactions, friendships, and relationships. I've always had this natural reflex in the back of my head to overanalyze, say nothing, the wrong thing, or inarticulately force words out that are comfortably expressed with clarity in my own mind. Anxiety is real, and it fucking sucks. I know I've come a long way in adapting to it and have grown over the years. I try my best. I'll never stop striving for personal growth and wisdom, but I'm scared as all hell for my psyche when any shred of self expression is still in doubt.
