Let’s Be Honest: Anxiety and How I’m Dealing With it

Let’s talk about anxiety and how I’m dealing with it.
I’ve been suffering from a lot of anxiety lately, and I’m overthinking way too much. It sometimes feels like my emotions and my thoughts are taking over completely, and I lose control. It’s like stepping out of your own body and watching yourself, like reality is shifting. It confuses and scares me.

It’s been pretty hard to deal with, but fortunately my boyfriend is very supportive and patient.
And I think it’s really important to be able to talk about it, at least for me. If I wouldn’t, then it would consume me even more and I’d be isolationg myself completely.
So I’ve been looking for ways to deal with the anxiety and overthinking, and writing is one of them.
I’m using my bullet journal as a way to sort write down my thoughts mostly, and I’m back at consistently tracking my mood and sleep again.

Also, music is a big let-out for me and I’ve been singing and recording some songs myself the last couple of days and have been putting them online (which I was afraid to do, because I don’t really like what I’m doing most of the time).

But as I’m working on my self-confidence, I might as well put it on here too.

Writing this blogpost was a big deal, but I hope you appreciate it.
And I somewhat hope you enjoy hearing this song, please let me know what you think. (You can’t see my face, but hopefully I’ll get to the point where I feel confident to actually make videos where you can see me sing).
