“Everyone experiences a version of anxiety or worry in their lives, and maybe we go through it in a different or more intense way for longer periods of time, but there’s nothing wrong with you. To be a sensitive person that cares a lot, that takes things in in a deep way is actually part of what makes you amazing… I wouldn’t trade it for the world, even when there are really hard times. Don’t ever feel like you’re a weirdo for it because we’re all weirdos.””
“You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.”
“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.”
“I openly admit to having battled depression and anxiety and I think a lot of people do. I think it’s better when we all say: ‘Cheers!’ and ‘fess up to it.'”
“Nothing is permanent in this wicked world — not even our troubles.”
“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.”
“Forget about what you are escaping from. Reserve your anxiety for what you are escaping to.”
“I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off […] I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues.”
“Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.”
