It’s no secret that I have been an anxiety ridden person pretty much since I was a kid. Since I’ve lived this life for quite sometime, I’ve picked up on the things that make me feel a little more at ease and more organized. When heading into this new school year, I had one big question; Do planners help reduce anxiety?
This weekend, I “went out” for the first time. If you know me personally, you would know that this is a pretty uncommon occurrence for me; I tend to be a homebody. As a gigantic fan of drag culture and the TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race, I was stunned when one of the recent winners was coming to a town within 20 minutes of my place. But, honestly, after purchasing my tickets I felt an overwhelming rush of dread. Events like this can be difficult, especially when you aren’t accustomed to going out. Respecting your limits can be on the tough side, especially if you’re one who tends to be on the anxious side.
Happy Mental Health Monday! Another week has passed, and I’m another week closer to my big move!
