Nablopomo Day 16.
I made this picture about a week ago and have been meaning to post it for you guys but the time has never seemed right. To be honest it is because I DO worry, all the time. Every day I am worrying about something or stressing about something that isn’t even important.
My boyfriend says that I am a “worst case scenario-ist” but I think that I am just a super anxious person. I worry and worry and worry sometimes it is crippling and there is just nothing I can do about it. There are times where I make myself sick and work myself up so much about a certain thing and it is not fun at all. The worst part is that a lot of the time I can’t even explain what is wrong with me, just the fact that I am anxious and feel sick. I have never even thought about actually being diagnosed with anxiety, but there’s a part of me that thinks I have it like for real.
So yeah, life is too short to worry, but guess what? A lot of us do anyway. It is not really something that helps. Quotes like that rarely help people in my opinion. “Life is too short to worry” doesn’t help at all if anything it makes it worse. It makes me think that I am doing everything wrong and I need to re-evaluate my life. Maybe I do but that is not the point. It is basically the same thing as telling someone with depression to “be happy”. It won’t magically make them feel better, it will most likely make them feel worse.
