In your battle:

stephandthejitters:

Don’t lose sight of what you’re fighting for. Slay your demons down, yet keep the spirit of kindness and understanding within you. Know that one day you’ll look back and realise that you don’t feel as bad as you used to anymore. Know that your hard work will bring on a sunrise just for you.

Anonymous asked: Hi! So...I've been struggling with social anxiety, depression & ocd for years now...I dropped out of college, I abandoned my dreams (I'm a visual artist, writter & musician) & I have to pushed myself constantly to even get up the bed...One of my most dear friends that I haven't seen in years contacted me recently via Facebook & I'm dying to see him but I'm also scared to death. My social anxiety is controlling me now so I've been avoiding him...I don't know what to do. I feel so sad. Any advice?

Oh dearest, I am so sorry to hear all that. Fuck I can relate though, and I know scores more people who follow this blog would be able to place awful situations like this in their life. Social anxiety is hellish. There’s no two ways about it. To know what you should do, to be silently screaming at yourself to just do it, but just not being able to… The self hatred is enough to drive you crazy. Sometimes it doesn’t even feel like we have choices, we are simply slaves to our anxiety, and it hurts like fucking hell. Darling, I wish there was an easy answer. I wish I could tell you my one foolproof way to ease and confidence, but it just doesn’t work like that. And the only one who can make things better is you. And yes, you can do it. You are beyond capable. You have to take it one step at a time, like any sort of recovery it is a day by day process. I would gently urge you to meet up with this friend. Sometimes the universe hands you opportunities to challenge yourself, and in my experience, the outcome is always positive when you step up and impress yourself. Its really all about you. You are the one who decides how this is gonna go down, so do whatever it is you have to to make it as easy as it can be, and you go out there and you have a fabulous time. I’m wishing you so much love, support, and good luck! ~~Anxiety Cat xx

wear your war paint

whether it’s makeup, a band tshirt, your fandom pins, tattoos, jewelry, your favorite ripped pair of jeans, or something no one else can touch or see like your favorite song repeating like a mantra in your head, the sound of your own heartbeat, or the knowledge that you were brave enough to get out of bed today when everything else inside you said “no”

wear your war paint and kick ass

One of the most accurate depictions of a panic attack that I’ve ever seen.

Thank you. Just thank you. Far too many people don’t seem to grasp the concept of what a panic attack actually is. Getting upset is not a panic attack. This is.

Reading this now.  My therapist recommended it & it is a very helpful, quick read.  It helps with those of us who have issues with parental guilt & manipulation.  It’s purpose is to help you regain your self worth & develop new ways to interact.

One of the best books I’ve ever read. It literally changed my life.
Anyone who thinks they may have been abused in any way by a parent or caregiver should read this book. 

please share.

I wish there were a way to download this book. I want it, but I don’t want my parents to find it. :/

Passing this along for people who need it!

"Yo Yo Yo! All you sucka MCs ain’t got nothin’ on me! From my grades, to my lines you can’t touch Kevin G! I’m a mathlete, so nerd is inferred, but forget what you heard I’m like James Bond the third, sh-sh-sh-shaken not stirred - I’m Kevin Gnapoor! The G’s silent when I sneak through your door. And make love to your woman on the bathroom floor. I don’t play it like Shaggy, you’ll know it was me. Cause the next time you see her she’ll be like, OOH! KEVIN G!" 

THANK YOU TO WHOEVER MADE THIS. BLESS YA SOUL 🙏

Coping strategy for when you are trapped in conversations with obnoxious people:

1. Pick a spot nearby, around eye level, preferably a small object. That is now the camera.
2. When they say something you just cannot stand, look directly into the camera like you’re on The Office
3. Repeat as often as needed
