As you guys know I have anxiety and recently I’ve been thinking about it a lot. Especially how it changes the little things in your life that you wouldn’t even think it would effect. So I decided to write a post about it and share my experiences with you guys. If you suffer from anxiety or any other mental health disorders feel free to write about your experiences in the comments below and about how it has changed your life.
It exhausts you- It can be very exhausting to constantly feel anxious and stressful all the time. Anxiety has a way of sipping the energy out of you. You may feel like you want to go out less, be around people less or you may not even want to do anything at all because everything makes you anxious.
You stop enjoying things- The things that you love stop bringing you joy and start to make you feel anxious over time. Sometimes it becomes easier to stop doing what you love then to try to get the energy to do them and work through the anxiety.
Your routine changes- As anxiety becomes a constant in your life you learn to live with it and change your routine the best you can so that you can live your life without letting anxiety get in your way too much.
The little things- What really annoyed me about anxiety and still kind of does is how it effects the little things in your life. Something as small as posting a picture online or replying to an email can become an anxiety inducing task and can become very frustrating.
There are a lot of ways in which anxiety changes your life apart from the ones I listed above as well. However, I want anyone reading this to know that having anxiety or a mental health disorder is not the end of the world. Over time you learn how to adjust and live your best life despite the disorder. If you are having trouble with your mental health and feel that you can’t deal with it on your own please seek medical help either in person or online if you can not currently get in person help. It can be extremely beneficial to talk to a professional.
