Better things

sunflowersI wrote another blog post yesterday afternoon to post today but it suddenly feels too naked. So, instead, I will write something new.

I am not happy today. This day is not unlike any other. I got up. I took care of the dogs. I got ready. But today I went to therapy and, try as I might, therapy is never fun. We didn’t delve into anything “deep” or upsetting necessarily. We just talked and I drank the water she offered.

I’ve realized that over the years my world has shrunken – shrunken considerably. I used to have tons of friends and always something to do. Now, not so much. It hasn’t helped that I have moved 4 times in the past 5 years from state to state.

I just get so anxious about meeting new people. I get stomach aches. I have panic attacks.

Anxiety is a bitch and I hate her.

It is alright to have days like today. It is alright to throw a pity party for yourself every now and again, after all, if not you – then who? We just can’t get stuck here. We must move forward. Put Anxiety in her place. Believe that better things are just around the corner, because they are.

They are.
