I am just a girl who wants to write her thoughts and mumblings so here I am!
I have always been an anxious person who worries over the littlest of things but last year my anxiety seemed to increase. Along with my anxiety I felt low and depressed and I couldn't help compare myself to everyone around me who seemed like confident and amazing people. I got up and faced each day with the same terrible thoughts which included 'I'm not as good as everyone else' and 'I'll never achieve anything'. It was a tough year emotionally but I knew I couldn't be the only one feeling like this. I started to think about what these experiences offered me and I realised it was perspective. I have a perspective that other people may not have. We all have different perspectives that we all can share with each other. So here is my blog, Those Knots, which offers my perspective on life and all it brings to an anxious mind.
What is this blog about?
This blog is simply about me voicing my thoughts. Thoughts on living with anxiety, dealing with negative thoughts and feelings and how to try to think positively. The blog is not only about anxiety but it is about every day life. I aim to post about other blogs/bloggers I like, articles I find interesting, song of the week, 5 fun things to do and anything else I find helpful to ME that I would like to share with YOU. Posts could be about anything and everything!
Who is it for?
Anyone who wants to read it. This blog is for me to express my anxious thoughts in a helpful manner but I would love to gain some readers who can relate to some of these thoughts and share their own. I welcome suggestions, stories, and coping strategies or even maybe just a chat from anyone who would like to share something.
Why 'Those Knots'?
Have you ever heard of the saying 'I have knots in my stomach'? Those knots are a reference to tension, worry, anxiety, nervousness and you could say scary feelings perhaps. It describes a feeling a lot of people have when experiencing anxiety.
