I used to be afraid of everything, so much that my mentor called me “Much Afraid.” After a lifetime of horrible things that I could not control, it’s no wonder that I was afraid of things that I could not control as I became an adult. 

I doubted

I worried constantly about things that were completely out of my control. I lived inside of an irrational fear, that created anxiety inside of me; to live inside of my head was torture. I was constantly afraid of losing people who I invested in, I doubted others love for me, I was afraid of every what if you could imagine.

Thank God

Anxiety seemed to always linger around and when real life things would come, I couldn’t control it.  It kept me from moving forward and growing for a long while. I worked really hard to change my mindset and come out of that stronghold, and thank God I did because I do not think I could handle all of my illnesses now with that state of mind back then.

It’s ok.

I think it’s ok to feel afraid and even have anxiety as long as it’s not controlling your mind, your will, and emotions.

You have a friend.

No matter what anyone says you can’t just snap out of anxiety, it does take a lot of work, and perseverance. You are battling your mind after all. Tackle it one day at a time. If you are having anxiety know that I am here and I will support you.

There was a famous line used in the inaugural address of Franklin D. Roosevelt that I live by. “There is nothing to fear but fear itself.”
