people with anxiety disorders are so brave like we feel unbearable amounts of anxiety over doing things like going to the doctor or getting on a plane or talking on the phone or taking a test but sometimes we find the strength to do those things anyway even though we’re terrified out of our minds and that’s really amazing. people with anxiety are brave as hell
i dont feel brave. I feel scared. all the time. constantly.
bravery doesn’t mean not feeling fear, it means feeling the fear and pushing past it to do what you have to do. i’m so sorry the world is so scary and stressful for you, i know how that feels, but every single day you wake up and you face it anyway and that’s incredible. it’s alright if you don’t feel brave, but do please remember that continuing to survive even when survival is hard and scary is something you should be very proud of.
