When anxiety takes hold, the feelings are incommunicable;
You feel powerless in your own mind.
“All I know is I have no reason to feel this way and I have no way to stop it.”
Like when you are caught beneath a wave, you will only struggle more if you fight it.
Though you cannot breathe and your body is rolling,
Just let the waves wash over you.
How do you talk yourself out of it? How can you make the darkness ebb?
Keep repeating the things you want to believe; breathe and talk yourself through it:
“You will only be who you allow yourself to be.
Whatever is meant to happen will.
You are beautiful, honest and kind. “
The more guidance you give yourself,
The more you remain in control of your life and your love.
Just remember to breathe again as soon as you catch some air.
