I Am On The Verge Of Breaking

My anxiety doesn’t care about the happy things.

My anxiety has even been able to find scary things in all the good things.

I really don’t even know how to describe my mental health these days. I always call myself a happy person. However, these days my anxiety seems to be convincing me that I am just really good at hiding things.

On the outside, I am smiling. On the inside, it’s a full on battle.

When it comes to what I write on here, I do my best to show what mental illness really looks like. For those who don’t have it, I want to help them to see what it is like. For those that do have it, I want them to see they aren’t alone.

Today, I want to share the good that’s going on in my life. I am also going to share how my anxiety doesn’t just stop, because other things are going right.

If you ask me how I am, I would tell you that I am great.

I most likely would even believe it myself.
