Your eyes snap open at 4:42 AM.
You’re gripped by fear you know well. Your heart is beating fast. Impending doom swirls chaotically in your mind, pulling you down into an abyss. You’re not really sure what’s down there, but you know that you can’t fall into it.
But you don’t know how to climb out, either. You’re stuck…helpless and terrified.
You lay in bed, trying to talk yourself down, back to calm, because you’ve been here before. It’s not a nightmare or sleep paralysis that ails you. It’s that damned gripping anxiety working overtime during the night.
And you cannot let it take you down.
Moving forward step by step is your only option. It’s what you’ve done in the past, and what you know you have to do to keep away from that paralyzing abyss.
Living with anxiety is no fun, even if you know how to manage your triggers. Particularly negative events can seemingly pop out of nowhere and leave you in a state of…near-panic.
This is where I was a couple of days ago, and I still feel the tremors reverberating through me as I write this.
But I’m still kicking. Directly at my anxiety and triggers, in fact.
Don’t ever stop fighting for yourself. Put one foot in front of the other and move forward.
