I saw that you deal with Anxiety. Im dealing through some hard things and I need some help.
If your anxiety has led to feelings of depression/worthlessness/fear, or if you can relate to any of these anxieties I’ll be mentioning, I can for sure help you think more positively by taking the right approach. I’m praying for you right now.
Thank you for being open. 🙂 I was never diagnosed with anxiety (I’d rather not) but I believe I have 3 different types. 1st one is not as bad as it used to be…I used to bottle up my anger until one day I would explode. I was abused physically and verbally by my own dad for much of my life, he’s very stubborn and the fact that I was very stubborn (still am but it’s under control now) we just clashed heads so much. Though it would get very bad, I had a fighting spirit. I got irritated easily and I would always seem like I was in a hurry. He’s a changed man, I continue to forgive him in my heart because in all honesty, I am still healing. 2nd one is I believe due to the fact that I delved in Astrology and the Law of Attraction to understand myself better and get over insecurities and this caused social anxiety for me because it opened me up to bad spirits. It screwed with my thinking even more and I look back now and believe I really had the potential to become schizophrenic. I became very judgmental at the same time I was also very self-deprecating, I was so self-centered and I looked to other things to help me gain confidence, I believed in God, but He was not part of my daily routine. I had trust issues (most likely also because I was abused), but not just trust issues with others but also trust in myself, so I burned bridges after behaving awkwardly around people and I couldn’t help it. 3rd is a shortness of breath out of nowhere (not triggered by thoughts or situations). It was usually before my period…I denied that coffee made it worse, and it took me a long time to finally quit it for good. I’m almost positive it’s related to PMS or PMDD (even though I was never diagnosed with it). I would obsessively force myself to yawn just so I felt like I was getting enough oxygen and it’s one of the scariest feelings. I later on found out yawing a lot is a sign of distress. And all those anxieties would always make me pity myself and I would get depressed, and I already had sleeping problems…but it wasn’t necessarily because I was worried for whatever reason but that my mind is just very active at night, it’s hard to stop random, racing thoughts and not enough sleep means you get irritated a lot, quite often. Each year gets better and better the more I pray, journal, blog, vlog, eat for my mind, share Jesus, and open up about anxiety.
If you haven’t watched any of my videos, I have a section on my channel about Anxiety and will eventually be adding more to that –> God first God always

And I’ve mentioned this on a post yesterday, which is what you probably saw. I take L-theanine supplements and it has seriously been a blessing. It doesn’t get enough attention it needs for it’s ability to eliminate anxiety. It’s an amino acid, a natural substance found in matcha, green tea, and black tea without the caffeine. I am calmer and can focus better on things I want to focus on, not on things that waste my time. Do your own research/read about the benefits, they are great. The one I’m taking right now is Bulk Supplements from Amazon. It should last me a year, but they have ones that are good for 2-3 months for $15.96 depending on how often you take it a day. –> Bulk Supplements L-theanine
I’m here, just message me about those heavy things on your chest. God bless you love. <3
Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
1 Peter 5:6-8 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
