Social Media mainly shows us the good happening in everyone's life. Just a never ending feed of the happy/positive side of life. Well I'm here to switch that up! I'm here to be honest and raw about how sometimes... life does not feel okay. . I'm an over thinker, a worrier and one BIG ball of stress! My stress leads me right to my anxiety. . I had a panic attack a week ago. 😔 Talk about an awful experience! To be inconsolable and not truly understand why is an awful feeling. You feel CRAZY (yea, I said the C word ). You feel out of touch with everyone, yourself and any kind of rationality. . . 🤦‍♀️ After my panic attack I apparently gave up any coping skills I ever knew or utilized. I gave into my icky, gross feelings and wallowed in them. I allowed myself to drown in it all. . . I had ZERO motivation. All I wanted to do was sleep. My stomach wanted nothing to do with food and my brain just replayed all of my worries on an endless loop. . . Now, I bet you're expecting me to say I jumped back into my workouts or self care routine, listened to some motivational podcasts and now all is right in the world. ☮️🧘‍♀️🥰 #WRONG . . I am not back to feeling 100%. However, I have stopped drowning myself. I've made my way back towards the surface, where I can breathe again. My understanding partner, supportive friends & family, and time have helped tremendously. . . We dont heal overnight. We can't rewire our brains in a few short hours. Sometimes we can't make what is wrong better. . . I'm here to tell you it is OKAY to NOT be okay! Nobody can be 💯 100% of the time. It is okay to be honest about the bad and the ugly parts of our lives...not just the good. I'm sharing my struggle with you to let you know you're not alone. #youarenotalone #itsokaytonotbeokay #anxiety #beawarriornotaworrier #stressball #stressmanagement #mentalhealth #realtalk #supportsystem
