!!!Guest Blogger!!! B.W. Ginsburg: We Can Get Through This.

Hello everyone! We have a very special guest today! This is a very good friend of mine that I met through the blogging community. She has been very supportive, and always there to encourage me. She also has similar struggles as me. She writes about her journey with extreme anxiety. I have learned a lot from her. Please give her a follow on her blog. She also has a fun Instagram. You might not meet her in person, but she is a wonderful social media friend to have. She has been a part of my blogging journey since day one. She cares! Well folks, here you go, my first ever Guest Blogger, B.W. Ginsburg!!!

We can get through this!

So many people say to think positive; to not be so negative. We’d all like to be able to believe in our success, but sometimes, it’s not that simple. As someone who’s struggled with anxiety for years, I know how hard it can be to think it’s possible to overcome our obstacles. 

Recently, I’ve found myself wondering if I’ll ever get through my anxiety. I wonder if I’ll ever achieve all that I want in life; if I’ll ever be able to experience a future that’s not controlled by doubt. It’s hard to imagine a life where I’m not overthinking and struggling with simple things – things that used to come so easily.

But the truth is, that with hard work, I can and will get through my anxiety, and you will too! I’ve lived life without being controlled by fear before, and I can do it again. I’ve also proved to myself on several occasions that I can face anxiety and come out on top. 

Another thing I’ve noticed is that, by constantly battling the challenges that our minds produce, we tend to forget to spend time doing the things we love. It was recommended to me the other day by Travis to take some time and do something that I enjoy. I chose to work on the current story that I’m writing. I admit that doing so made me feel both happy and proud of myself for being so productive. Also, just the fact that I can do something I love without feeling anxious, is always a great sign!

The point I’m trying to convey is this: even when times seem so hard that you can’t imagine getting through them, there is hope. Even if you’ve struggled for so long that there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel, there is a strong possibility for success. We may not always feel in control of our mental health issues, but we can control how we let them effect us. Just because anxiety and depression may make us feel weak, does NOT make it true.

  1. Thank you B.W. Ginsburg for sharing!

    It is so great to hear that you are getting back to something that you love and enjoy. That is something that is SO important to me, we got one life to live and all. Lately I have been focusing on the little “wins” and that has given me a better outlook on life. Anxiety and depression are a roller coaster of ups and downs, so I love that you mentioned that just because they make us feel weak does not mean that we are!

    • Shelby,

      Thank you for your comment! I think it’s great that you’re focusing on your wins! No matter how ‘big’ a step you may take towards making progress, it is important to note that you are in fact, making progress and improving! I think that so many times we think that just because we may not be at the stage of life that we wish, that we aren’t getting better. This couldn’t be further from the truth! Stay strong and keep working hard! You will get through this!
