The Troubles of Anxiety (& what I'm learning)












Shop This Look: Top // Jeans // Booties (VERY similar)

Happy Wednesday everyone! I seriously love this outfit even though there is nothing truly special about it lol. Normally I wouldn't pair booties with this tee and jeans and I'm not sure why but I love that it's a little different for me. To be honest as much as I love fashion I definitely can be a little boring with my outfits so I'm trying to branch out even though this probably isn't that far out... haha! 

I wanted to get a little personal today which I don't normally do but I want to. I think it's important to talk about things that I'm struggling with because maybe someone else is struggling too. 

I struggle with anxiety. 

That's nothing new, huh? I think the majority people deal with anxiety so I'm not special. That being said, there have been a few times throughout my life where my anxiety has been almost unbearable. 

Can you relate? 

I feel much better now but the past month or so my anxiety has been very bad and I felt like I couldn't get a handle on it. In the past when my anxiety has gotten worse than normal I had tactics and specific ways to handle it but this time those things weren't working. I've had to readjust lately and change how I handle my anxiety which hasn't been the easiest. But that happens and that's okay; readjustment is a part of growth and who wants to stay the same all the time? 

Readjustment is a process, it takes time and I definitely haven't figured it out. Maybe I won't figure it all out ever but that's okay; I just want to have a handle on things and know the steps I need to take to handle the overwhelming feeling of anxiety. Maybe once I've (sort of) figured it out I can do a post on my tips. I recently watched The Darling Detail do a Instagram live and she said something that really stuck out to me; she said something along the lines of "set goals for yourself but be okay with where you are now". We are always told to hustle, hustle, hustle which I think is very important to do but too much hustling can make you, or it has me, feel a little empty. I'm trying to step up my blog/Insta game but I also need to be okay with where I am now. 

Like I said, I don't think it is good to just be in a standstill and be the same all the time but it isn't healthy to constantly want more and never be satisfied. I want to have goals and dreams but I also want contentment in where I am in my life. I'm right where I should be, I don't need to feel like I'm constantly losing a race that doesn't exist. 

Those are just some thoughts I have, I probably could write an essay on this topic but I'll save that for another day. Hope everyone has a good rest of their week!

XOXO, Maddy
