Anonymous said: do you have anxiety/depression and if u do, how have u learned to deal with it?
Anxiety I have definitely and still do this day suffer from from time to time and I know individuals who battle with both. With anxiety, I try and channel things that help me calm down, help calm my mind down about whatever that is making me feel on edge. I take a moment and ask myself am I working myself up over nothing, or is this really a problem. With depression talking! you have to talk! talk talk talk to someone. You have to keep your mind positive. Find an activity or hobby that helps you cope with it like exercising, writing, drawing, something that physically takes your mind out of whats bothering you or keeping you down. I know sometimes it can be hard, you cant pin point whats bothering you or making you sad, and I know its not easy so I can not emphasize talking enough or even writing down your thoughts down. Try not to be alone with your own thoughts and if you are, like i said find an outlet. Being in seclusion can be harmful to you coping with it. Its easier said than done sometimes I know. Write down positive thoughts, read uplifting books. Don’t be afraid to open up about it, or even seek help from a professional. I have a dear dear friend of mine who suffers from depression and she has seen a therapist from time to time and has said it really does help her cope and deal with it. I am here to listen and talk everyday if you this situation pertains to you to talk ANYTIME you need to! Please feel free. I hope this was of some help! xoxoxo!
