November Blogging Challenge: Day Nine


Day Nine

Theme: Something you’re proud of in the last few days.

I don’t really have anything that in the last few days would count as some sort of notable accomplishment – you know, like an award or anything like that. So my answer to today’s prompt might to some feel like a cheat of a response. I’m going to include my daily battle with my anxiety’s as an accomplishment. One that really is honestly just small victories every time I face them and win.

I don’t talk about it out loud very often, but overcoming these issues of mine are something I learn to tell myself “well done, you’ve done really well” even though it’s something most people don’t realise I’m dealing with. I strongly care about people being more open about these kinds of issues so I guess this is my first time really talking about them openly that isn’t to my friends in a private discussion.

I’m not ready to talk about them in detail yet, but yes – these are my accomplishments and something I’m proud of in the last few days.

    As someone who was diagnosed with anxiety and depression earlier this year, and has been seeing professional help since then, I can say with all certainty that managing your anxiety is a fantastic achievement. I also absolutely agree that people should be more open about their state of mental health. Not only does it help connect you to a network of support, but it can also help others to find the support they need.

    Well done 🙂

      I completely agree. While my anxieties are completely self-managed, I find that even when I can’t always cope that I should still appreciate when I do. Because even if I do “fail” it doesn’t make me a “failure”. And it’s amazing the difference having a support network can make, it does so much and people don’t always know how much they help you. 🙂
