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.




Hey girl hey! My name is Kacie Duncan.

I am many things but my favorite titles are: Christian, Wifey, Boy Mama, and Writer.

I write about what I know which is motherhood, balancing career and family, and mental wellness.

I have dealt with anxiety and panic attacks for the majority of my life. As I became an adult and the pressure of life became more intense I wasn't able to hide it anymore. I didn't know who I could talk to about this. As I looked around places like social media, I had a very difficult time finding people like me. Mental health, specifically anxiety, was not being talked about. I vowed that my experience would not be wasted and that I would focus on being an advocate, support person and light to people who experienced anxiety and panic attacks.

So, not only am I inspired by everyday life I am very passionate about sharing my personal stories of dealing with anxiety and sharing them in a vulnerable, genuine light. 

I hope you find this page helpful, inspiring, and even a little bit funny.

Happy Reading!
