14 years old: I’m young but I know what I want. This isn’t that hard, I’m all grown up already and have everything figured out. 17 years old: Well, this is a little harder than I thought. School is almost ending. What am I going to do with my life? 21 years old: What the fuck is going on? Where are my socks?
25 years old: *looks at bank statement* That’s fine…humans can survive like seven days without food.
my therapist taught me to start thinking of my anxiety as my panicky friend
this is so cute omg
Woah this is super useful!!
For all my anxious friends out there.
This totally works! Some of us get stuck in the sense that we *are* our emotions, so they overwhelm us and we can’t do anything about them. When you give your emotion an identity separate from you, it gives you the distance to make better judgments about it, and to comfort yourself better. 10/10 therapy veterans would recommend.
