What happened when I stopped hating my anxiety

Updated: Oct 21, 2020

For years, my anxiety was the worst thing that ever happened to me. I resented it for stopping me from being ‘normal’. I was angry that it wouldn’t give me even a day of peace, and upset because it just wasn’t fair. There were even days when I wondered what the point of even going on was. You will see there that I have labelled my anxiety as ‘it’. I point blank refused to accept that it was part of me, part of who I am. And this was my biggest mistake.
