Hello, my name is Anxiety! And I have come to destroy you. I take over when depression does not accomplish the mission. You see, anxiety knows your EVERY weakness. The way you see yourself in the mirror, the way the world views you, you think people are out to get you, you think your friends are always talking about you whenever you’re around, that’s me—I have anxiety, for years I’ve struggled with anxiety, I wouldn’t say it only gets me at my worst. But at every public event, it doesn’t matter if it’s a birthday party, a concert, or an open mic session! Anxiety somehow finds its way creeping itself into my atmosphere. That’s when I start to shut down. I feel the eyes of people looking at me, even though they’re not. That’s what anxiety does to you. It makes you want to crawl into a deep enough hole beneath the earth’s surface. So far down you hope nobody notices you’ve left. But don’t worry anxiety isn’t the only one! Your world becomes dark and full of hopelessness! With anxiety around it only makes matters worse! Your insecurities get worse! So, you hide, trying to get away! But it follows you! Just like anxiety, it’s the one sending you messages telling you “you’re not loved, and you know it!” “I will get in your head!” “your medication will not save you this time!” Now depression fully introduces itself.
