Don't Believe The Lies Your Anxiety Tells You

I believe in you

I believe that you deserve to stay living

I believe that you have the strength to keep breathing even though breathing is the hardest thing when crippled with anxiety

But I promise you...

the pain you’re feeling right now is only temporary, even though I know it’s scary

& life for you right now feels pretty heavy

But listen to me, there are many people in your life that love & care about you as a human being who deserves tranquility

So keep trying & keep climbing

You Are Worthy Of Healing

Your mistakes are not what define you

Your mistakes can only define you

based on how you survive them

& you haven’t made it this far in life

enduring all your pain & suffering

to give up now & make it all for nothing

So please just hold on...

One more day, one more hour, one more minute or whatever it takes

for you to understand that you deserve

to be living with your life worth having

& you’re worthy to be loved, including all your life’s damage
