Sharing my fear and hope

Good morning everyone,

I have had some lovely comments about my positive blogs. Yesterday my new found positivity was put to the test. I live in the centre of a small town and my street is always busy and noisy at weekends. For years this didn't bother me, I kind of got used to drunks singing at 2am.

Within the past 2 years it has become worse and fights break out and I get anxious and scared. Last night there was noise, I accepted the fact I was going to feel anxious, and when it did kick in I controlled my breathing and let it pass. For the first time my heart didn't race or feel like it was going to explode. When it all calmed down I praised myself for taking control and made a mental note, that although I was anxious nothing bad happened.

This probably seems like a very minor thing but I am learning small steps are the way to go. I am also learning that actually I am a lot stronge than I realise, I have lived with my anxiety for years and I am still here and I still have hope.

I am rewarding myself tody with a new book on mediation :)

Be kind to yourselves,

Love T x

    My thoughts of despair have been replaced with hope.

    I hope others take heart from your post.


  • It's always good to read post like this. Hearing how someone has managed to control their anxiety and be positive helps everyone on here I believe.

    You deserve to treat yourself and last night proves you are a strong person.

    Have a great weekend with your new found hope. :)


  • Well done Tara,
