Faith is important. However, having faith in ourselves isn’t always easy. Especially for those of us who struggle with anxiety and other issues, having faith in ourselves can seem extremely difficult at times.
Yesterday I was reminded by a family member never to lose faith in myself. He reminded me that I will get through my anxiety.
While I know that I’m strong, sometimes when I get really anxious and find myself struggling, I find it hard to believe that I’ll ever get through my anxiety. Sometimes I lie down and just think to myself: Will I ever get through this? What if my whole life I just keep trying to get through my anxiety but never actually manage to do so?
These are scary thoughts. I don’t want to live my whole life struggling so much. I don’t want simple things in life to keep seeming so difficult. I hate dealing with anxiety and I hate missing out on things because of it.
I’m not going to give up though and I know that deep down I am stronger than my anxiety. I do. Still, though, sometimes having faith can be hard. I see myself go through the same things over and over again. I see the cycle of doing well and then struggling repeat itself. I hate that cycle. I want to break that cycle. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not the doing well part of the cycle that bothers me, it’s the part where my anxiety creeps back and takes over. That part’s gotta go.
Next time things seem hopeless, remember that they’re not. You can and will get through your struggles. You just have to keep working hard on a consistent basis! Never give up hope and never lose faith!
