My anxiety have been through the ozone lately, like a lot of people who already struggled with it even before the pandemic.
Self loathing, complaining and constant fear of losing a valuable chunk of your life that would be retrievable. All of that combined is quite nerve-wrecking.
But then I saw a quote. That was something like “if you are getting anxious about what you don’t have, imagine for a moment what if you had them, what if things worked out”.
And then when I thought about it, my perspective took 180° turn.
I couldn’t help thinking, if not this, I could be in a worse situation and a worse place.
Some things just aren’t meant for us yet we keep longing for them.
We hate our fate for being unfair to us, and honestly our hate is at times justified. But where would you be if everything worked out the way you wanted?
I’m trying to make it a habit. As it has made me so much calmer and helped me with my anxiety tremendously.
If I had what everyone else have, I wouldn’t be here writing. I would be leading a traditional life that never appealed me. I might have grown into people I pity or people who make me cringe.
Maybe I would hate my life even more.
Not saying everything I don’t have is not worth having or everything I have is perfect, I don’t have that kind of positivity.
I might not be having my dream life, but I have a lot of what I didn’t imagined I would have.
