HOW I OVERCAME MY ANXIETY DISORDER

I feel it is necessary to share this story. I used to be a worrier. I worried a lot about everything and about nothing and most times, when things did not go my way, it put me in a near traumatic state and I would fall sick.

I always wanted to have control of everything that concerned me. I discovered that I was also very negative.

I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and I live everyday life like everything is a big deal. I always expected things to turn left instead of going right.

My partner left me because he said I was too negative and I worried too much and that it sapped his strength.

I concluded he didn’t love me enough but now I understand that he was just trying to protect his sanity.

I decided that I didn’t want to continue living this way. I decided to seek help. I knew that the first step would be to spend time with myself and get to know myself.

So I planned solo dates everyday for the next one month. I took myself out to eat, for drinks and everything in between. I stopped hanging around my negative friends, those ones that encouraged my behavior.

It was hard but I soon got to realize that my anxiety was rooted in a fear of abandonment. I took courses on the subject and read a lot of books.


Little by little, I started to understand and I started to let go. It was not easy but it was worth it. Whenever I would catch myself drifting into anxiety, I would catch myself and begin to declare positivity.

I tried every time to see the good in every situation even if the situation that occured was a bad one. My family started to notice changes and they commended me.

I would like to say that my anxiety had been reduced ten times and now I have more confidence in myself and in how things would turn out.

I have decided to let go of anything I can not control and focus only on those things that are within my control and the quality of my life has increased dramatically.

I would want to tell anyone with anxiety disorders to take a break and to breathe, do not take life too seriously because none of us are going to get out of it alive.

Relinquish control to God and you will live a more fulfilling life.
