Friendly Reminder: Your Brain Is Lying

Self care and reality check for anxiety and anxious people.

Do you find yourself freaking out because you have this internal monologue saying, "You aren't good enough." Or, "Nobody likes you." Or, "You're stupid." Or, "You shouldn't be yourself." Or other extremely negative thought patterns you have about yourself? Yeah, I have them, too. It's annoying, right? But, you know what? Our brains are actually lying to us. We're doing fine. You're doing fine, way better than you think you're doing. You're good enough. You're loved. You're smart in your own way. And, you really should be yourself and do what is authentic to yourself.

I know that your anxiety is taking over. So, take a deep breath with me. Take the biggest breath you've taken throughout the whole day. In the words of YogaWithAdriene, breathe lots of love in.  And now breathe out through your mouth. Breathe lots of love out. Now, close your eyes and focus on your breath. Take two more breaths. When you're done, open your eyes and read the rest of this post! Or, not, totally up to you.

This probably won't alleviate your anxiety and negative thought process right away, but at least for this moment, you're okay. 

This is your reality check. You're doing great. Even when you don't feel like it, you're still worthy. And, remember, your brain can be a negative, lying bitch sometimes.

My inspiration for this post (you know other than my anxiety):
