    Dear Me,

    You need to accept the fact that you do have an anxiety problem. You do need medication in order to function normally…and that’s okay. You’ve always been anxious and it was fine for so long because you are strong. You are a strong woman and you’ve been strong for a long time, but now it is time to admit that you need help occasionally. I know you don’t want help, but you need it. Everything happened at once. Schoolwork, moving from college to home with an abusive sister, your brother trying to kill himself, one of your best friends trying to kill herself, internship applications, wondering if you even want to do this for the rest of your life. That is heavy stuff and it was bound to catch up with you eventually. The good news is that you are still strong. You have medication now to help you cope and you’re going to see a doctor to talk it all through. It will get better. I believe in your strength to handle this. You will get through it and become revolutionary.

      I sort of know how you feel, so it was great to read this. I have a social anxiety disorder, but I’m not medicated. Which probably is why I’m so easily agitated lately. Usually I just don’t do what makes me anxious, which was easier in the past, but this year everything started falling apart at once, and now it isn’t so easy. Good luck to you in the future 🙂

      Being anxious and stress comes with daily living – we are always on the go and seldom find peace in our lives. That’s why we have to step from our lives and give ourselves time to breath, meditate, and perhaps rest. Could be 15 minutes to half and hour, but if we do that each day it really does make it much easier.

      Being calm and collected definitely helps and laughing at the situation (especially if its stupid) works too. Definitely beats grieving over every minute detail right? 🙂
