I know anxiety is so difficult and you feel as though you can never get better but trust me, you can if you take a stand and set your priorities straight. No one is going to push you but yourself; i know they're people around who are going to help and guide you (parents, psychologists, teachers,doctors etc) but you have to rely on these and push yourself on your own! its like having a to do list and in order to complete a task and tick it off, you must do it no matter what.
Anxiety is a game, it plays tricks on you, once you understand the gist of it, expose yourself, accept it,do meditation, yoga , do CBT do whatever u can do! just force yourself, i know its hard but thats the whole point, its to face your fears until the anxiety wears off.
Also, if you want to beat anxiety, you must keep your priorities consistent! i know its difficult at first, heck i'm still trying! but missing days or exposures isn't going to help you efficiently. just when you start again its like you're doing this all over again. i remember how i was out and about for a few days and i stayed at home for 2 days and my anxiety just kicked in the next day and i could barely go out! ://
dont make everyday a new beginning, start now and continue until you see results, even get your psychologist tell you what you need to do
life is worth living and with anxiety, its hard but if you create goals and have accomplishments, you're on the right path to happiness and being your carefree self
i have hope in you all and myself
