Anyone who has to deal with anxiety on a daily basis will understand the full meaning of this quote in the image below.
Anxiety is extremely frustrating. A lot of the time you know there is no reason to be anxious, panicking or downright freaking out; but you cannot stop those feelings and emotions rushing through you.
It's a tough thing to live with. I know. Wish I didn't, but unfortunately I do. It has become part of my life. And when you don't have the support of family and friends or maybe they don't understand, it's even harder to deal with. I have learned to live my life one step at a time. There is no other way when you live with anxiety, depression and OCD. Take it slow. Take it easy. Be kind to yourself.
Be kind to yourself. You are fighting a brave battle which most people will probably never understand.
Happy Valentine's day!
Yeah, I know, some of you reading here right now are thinking, "what's so happy about this day?" Maybe you're missing a loved one, maybe you're feeling lonely and you wonder when you will ever meet that special someone...... Maybe things are hard for you in your life right now. If this is you, I want you to know you are not alone. Just lean into God, he will be with you and carry you through. He loves you. Even when you feel no one else does. Even when you feel He doesn't love you, He really does. May you find peace and joy in that knowledge today.
Much love to all of you, especially those of you who might feel extra lonely today. I send you warm squishy hugs and virtual chocolates. And for those of you who are lucky enough to be pampered and showered with love and treats today... ENJOY!
Have a fabulous Valentine's day!
There are so many people in the world hurting right now. Each one with their own problems, pain and heartache. As I'm sitting here reading some comments on other faith pages I follow on facebook, struggling with my own hurt; feeling and understanding some of the pain and suffering of others (especially those with depression, anxiety and relationship issues), the tears are streaming down my face. It's so, so sad.
For all of you who are suffering today, in one way or another.... Who are feeling lost, hurt and unloved... I send you a virtual hug and I pray that you will find peace and God will dry your tears and heal your broken heart.
Much love to you all on this last day of 2017.
I love today's inspiration from Joyce Meyer's - Power Thoughts Devotional. It's all about energy, excitement and good emotions. I really need this in my life right now! Maybe you do too? Hope it inspires you.
This really is a great little book. I've been reading it since January and find the daily messages very inspirational.
