Talk it out sister
Updated: Jan 11
Talk it out. Anxiety held in silently is like a ticking time bomb. Let me put it to you in a way that makes sense. Any momma has gone to great lengths to put together the "perfect" birthday party for our little one. This always involves a good balloon inflation session *sigh*. Without a doubt you will run into that stubborn balloon who could use a little more helium. You fire it up, inflate some more, and blast...... she gone. Busted into hundreds of tiny pieces of latex.
Now, imagine you are the balloon. You are already a bit fragile because you have been dealing with all the feels anxiety brings. The second that you take just one more thing (anxious thought, stress, lack of sleep), it sends you over the edge and kaboom. Well, your brain didn't really explode but it might feel like it
The more you silently hold on to your anxious thoughts the more it breaks you down mentally, physically and emotionally. You have got to let it out.
Find someone you trust and talk with them. Maybe the person you want to talk to is someone you know, like a best friend or spouse, or maybe it is someone you do not know yet like a therapist. The fact is, the more you hold on and spew on these facts—the worse your anxiety will get. Its 2020 and its time to drop the stigma and talk with someone about what you are feelng.
