When the Happy Girl Gets Anxiety

When the Happy Girl Gets Anxiety || Girl on the Verge || Leah Grey Ministries

I never thought I would get anxiety.

Growing up, I was one of those bubbly, almost-always happy little girls who found delight in chasing lightning bugs and drinking fresh lemonade on the back deck. I had fear like any child, especially when faced with being apart from my parents overnight, but I tended to live my life cheerful and smiling.

Here’s the truth about anxiety.

You feel alone because YOU are the one who has anxiety.Even if you do have great friends or family who supports you and wants you to find healing, they are not living with the shadows.

Anxiety is not logical — you can’t talk yourself out of the worries and nerves because it’s irrational. Half the time I had strong anxious feelings I didn’t know why I was feeling anxious. Other times, I would be able to tell that I was “nervous to do X” or “worried about Y” but I was still unable to convince myself that it would be okay.

I would LOVE for you to come read the whole story over at my friend Leah’s blog, Leah Grey Ministries! See you over there! xoxo

    Totally me – happy and outgoing but I get anxiety and there’s nothing I can do about it.
