Anxiety Support

Being abit silly!!

Being abit silly!!

I'm one for poking fun at myself....i used to do it as a defense mechanism so if I put myself down first...then no-one else would. I can be a little silly and I thought I'd send one of my crazy pics. Why did I take it? Well why not? Who doesn't want to look like a farm animal in a photo lol. Whether you laugh or simply think "What on earth is she doing?" If it raises a smile...good. hugs to each and every one of you. Janie x

Janie, you're precious. I laugh at myself all the time. Most people are too serious, we need to smile through the hard and good times. Thanks for that. Hugs, Agora xx

Thankyou lovely. I'm ecstatic it's not just me then lol. I have to be serious professionally so this is a side of me that isn't seen often. As I can be 'me here...warts n all as they say, I thought what the heck. If 1 person in 5 smiles...that makes my day. Hugs right back at you xx

I do that too. I have been making an effort recently to change the way I talk to myself. I am pretty sure talking negatively about myself is making my anxiety worse. While it may get a laugh, I worry that sometimes I'm verbally slapping myself which, although they are just words, can obviously do damage. Plus, sometimes I feel that women are instructed to be self deprecating as a sign of politeness or humility. It's not a good thing. You deserve better. Try saying something nice about yourself out loud. It will feel awkward but take note of the reaction your body has. It's an interesting test. :)

I should have mentioned that it's what I used to do...im sorry I didn't do that. I happily don't care about ppls opinions about me now actually. If they don't like me they don't have to speak to me...i don't do negative(unless it's family and then it's kind of just 'there'). I posted this because I wanted to make you smile...i am aren't I?(im smiling i mean). I've come thro the other side of the darkest place...inside my head when I had anxiety and depression. I don't take it lightly and know it can strike at any time and return. I have wobbles and deal with them. Women can do this yes...i used to. Alot!!. Anxiety slaps us enough doesn't it without us verbally doing it to ourselves. Women and men need to be given affirmations sometimes...esp when in that darkest place to know they are ARE relevant. Try not to talk negatively about yourself...its hard. Ohhh I know it's hard but you'll get there. You don't have to do the "you are gorrrrgeous" (well you can if you like...slaps hand and tuts!) But something more like "I can do this...im me I'm WORTH it"( no not like the advert lol) whatever you like...do it tho. Thankyou for your kind words and take care. Janie x

What a pretty lady you are. You have discovered my secret, I do the same thing. I also crack myself up which some people find strange. I believe this is they way to stay young. My profile picture is of me pretending to be a dog. I don't know why, I accept it because it makes me happy. Pam
