I have struggled with very high anxiety and an extremely guarded heart throughout my entire life. My struggles frustrated me beyond belief, and in the past I was nearly nonexistent and very withdrawn, which lead to a very isolated life and kept me from being the best version of myself.
I am learning about being brave and the uncomfortable feelings it provides. I know I have to give in and risk exposure to become my best self and to manage my fear so it does not control my life anymore.
I want to share with you how awareness and mindfulness, changing daily habits, and a lot of practice can help us open our hearts and exist in our own lives. It's a very lonely life being so disconnected and we don't have to feel or be that way anymore.
We are not alone and need to create communities of support. We need each of our unique selves in this world, so I encourage you to seek your journey of healing and self-love with curiosity rather than fear.
