You are always worth way more than you think you are. You’ll be ok my friend. Don’t let the negative script of mental illness defeat you.

So, how are you feeling today? Are you good? Or do you feel like you have nothing left to give? Either way, its ok. Really, whether your energy is high or you have barely enough to lift your head; you are you.

However, when Depression Speaks or anxiety; or any mental health condition, it often lies. Take anxiety for instance. Many people feel as though they are going to die; a deep down, “calling” almost that the just “know it to be true.”

Yet, despite this, they go years and years living. Why? Because anxiety lies. Well, sort of. Since our anxiety comes from our fight, fright or freeze response in our brains, we are primed to be on high alert, prompting us to feel like we are under threat. So, it makes sense to me that many people feel as though they are going to pass away when they are anxious.

The good news? When the feeling of dread starts to take centre stage in my head, I think; “Oh, hello there anxiety disorder.” I use it as a mental illness episode detector. This has proven to be an effective tool because I can then deploy my coping tools. Like Mindfulness, exercise and rest. What tips me off? While I know I can die, most times death is unpredictable, so when I feel certain I will pass, I know my thoughts are essentially flawed.

So, in short, you’ll be ok my friend, just remember, When our symptoms are high, so to are our negative thoughts. It’s good to learn those key one-liners that can trap us into remaining idle; into thinking that we’re not worthy of love, and that we are a burden. None of these are the case, but when In those moments, we swear they are true……… They are not!
