My Story

I spent most of my early 20s thinking I could do it all. Mental health wasn’t something I really ever thought about. I continued to push until I couldn’t push anymore.

 

One night when I was teaching at home, I had my first panic attack. I had absolutely no idea what to do or how to feel. I felt like I was running from a bear 24/7. From there, I struggled with a long and arduous journey struggling with daily anxiety. I wanted to push it all away, and to avoid any uncomfortable thought and sensation that came my way.

 

I began taking small steps toward taking care of myself. I started putting myself first and practicing self compassion. I started going to therapy and begun educating myself about anxiety and I even started sharing my journey through social media to help others who may have been struggling.

 

Experiencing anxiety taught me to take my power back. It taught me that my needs are worth meeting, and that I matter, just as much as everyone around me. It’s been a journey filled with ups and downs, and it’s still not perfect (if never will be) but it’s my life, and I wouldn’t change that for the entire world.

 

Mental health is real, it’s raw, and it’s worthy of being talked about. From looking at me you would never know I experienced any kind of anxiety. Sometimes our friends and family members who look like they have it all together may be the ones who need our support.

 

Sometimes the most powerful words we can hear when we’re struggling is simply ‘Me too’.

You are never alone in your journey.
