Happy Valentine’s Day and Thank You!

Hey everybody!

First of all, I’d like to wish everybody a Happy Valentine’s Day! Second of all, a few days ago I discovered that this is my fourth year blogging on WordPress!

As many of you may already know, I started blogging after both my father and therapist recommended I do so. My dad thought it would be a great way to get my feelings out and my therapist thought it would be a great way to help myself – and others – with our anxiety. I am very happy that blogging was recommended to me. Blogging has helped me realize that I am not alone in my struggles. Additionally, I have met many wonderful friends through the craft and in my opinion, become a better writer.

I’m going to be honest. While I’m happy that I’ve been blogging for so long, it also hurts my feelings that four years after starting this blog, I’m still struggling with anxiety. I wish I could tell you that I’m where I want to be. However, I have made progress and for that I am extremely grateful!

Writing has helped me in so many ways. Writing continues to give me something to be happy about and I really feel like I’m helping others by telling my story and by spreading inspiration.

So thank you to everyone who continues to support me – both through writing and in my journey to get through anxiety. Also, if any of you are new to the blogging world, I wish you all the luck in the world! If you’re considering blogging, I recommend you do so, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

B.W. Ginsburg

Writing

  • Currently writing my new fantasy/romance/sci-fi novel! The book will be a swirl of love at first sight, good vs. evil, mental health issues, and so much more! The story is still early in its journey to be completed, but things are going pretty well!

Special Thanks

Hi everybody! Today I’d like to share with you all how thankful I am for your support. As many of you know, life isn’t always easy and knowing that you have family and friends who care for and love you can make all the difference.

I’ve met many friends through blogging. While I haven’t met any of you in person, I can’t tell you how much your friendship means to me. Anxiety is not an easy thing to go through and knowing that I can count on you guys to really listen and respect what I have to say feels so incredibly wonderful. Really, words can’t describe how happy I am to have you in my life.

I’d like to go even further and say that I admire those of you who have shared your own stories of struggling – that is not an easy thing to do. Whether you’re a person who is relatively open about your life or someone who is rather shy, talking about your struggles can be difficult. Some people tend to be understanding, while others simply choose to walk away when others need them the most. With this being said, to share a part of you that you’re not always proud of can be a very hard thing to do. I admire those of you who have spoken up about your feelings and who try your hardest to help others. Also, even if you haven’t talked about whatever you struggle with, you are still strong. Whenever you’re ready to talk about what plagues your mind, there will be people who are kind and considerate.

So again I’d like to thank everyone who supports me in my journey to get through anxiety. I’d like to thank those of you who share your struggles in order to help yourself and others and those of you who take the time to listen and respect those around you. Thank you for your friendship and kindness. As cliché as it may sound, you really do make the world a better place!

Have a wonderful holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving!

First of all, I’d like to wish everyone who celebrates, a happy Thanksgiving! For those of you who don’t celebrate, I hope you have a great day!

I would like to take some time to thank all of you who have supported, and continue to support, me in my journey to get through anxiety. As many of you know, dealing with anxiety is extremely difficult and it definitely helps to know that there are people out there who genuinely care about, and maybe even understand, what you are going through. Thank you for all of your support, advice, and kindness over the years. It means the world to me.

Please know that I am here for each and every one of you if you ever need to talk about your own mental health issues. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Stay strong and remember how truly amazing you are!

National Mental Health Day

Today is National Mental Health Day. Before I begin, I would like to thank everyone who supports me in my journey to get through anxiety. It’s a difficult issue to deal with and I am extremely grateful for your support!

One of the things that really bothers me are the misconceptions that surround mental health issues. There are many that upset me, but one of the ones that I personally deal with the most is the assumption that mental health issues are easy to get through and that they are a sign of immaturity, weakness, or laziness. None of these things are true. Mental health issues can be just as difficult to deal with as physical ones. For some reason, many people seem to dismiss this fact.

Battling with negative thoughts, irrational fears, and other mental health problems is not easy. It’s not something that you can just snap out of. Just because getting through anxiety or over other obstacles can take time, does not mean that those who struggle are not trying their absolute hardest on a daily basis.

I personally have struggled with anxiety for several years and know first hand how difficult dealing with the mental health issue can be. There are so many things that I love to do that anxiety holds me back from doing. Yes, I try my hardest to overcome my fears, but that does not mean that my anxiety will just vanish. I only wish it was that simple.

I know that I can’t expect everyone to understand – none of us can. There will always be people who don’t know what it’s like to struggle with a mental health issue. There will always be people who think that we are making up our struggles or simply not strong enough to overcome them. What’s important is that we believe in ourselves and that we remind ourselves that we are stronger than our anxiety.

If you are reading this and are someone who finds it difficult to understand what others go through, please try to remember that we all struggle with something. Just because you may not deal with the same issues, does not mean that they are not real. Also, even if you can’t exactly understand what someone is going through, please try your hardest to be kind to those around you.

To those of you who struggle, you can get through this!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Okay, I have some pretty exciting news! I have officially reached over 1,000 followers on here! So many of you are such amazing friends and have continued to be utterly supportive throughout the years. I cannot thank you enough! I originally started this blog when my therapist and dad both told me that writing about my anxiety might help me feel better, along with help others to realize that they are not alone in their struggles. Just thinking that I could have made a difference means the world to me and the fact that so many of you have been here for me is truly inspirational and appreciated!

I know that I haven’t been on here as much as I used to be, and for that, I’m sorry. I intend to check in on you guys more often because so many of you have been here for me when I’ve needed someone to talk to. I wish I could express in words what that’s meant to me, but I don’t think that I can. Please just trust me when I say that your friendship and loving comments have truly made a difference.

I hope you all know that if you ever need to talk, I’m here for you. I hope you also know that even if it feels like you’re alone in dealing with your struggles, you’re not. There will always be people that will care about you and love you, and if you look carefully, you will find someone that you can trust and share your feelings and experiences with.

I also want to tell you this – you can get through your struggles and over your obstacles! If you work hard on a consistent basis and never give up, you will succeed. You may not get through your challenges overnight, but if you put in the effort to make progress, it will happen! I know that sometimes it may feel otherwise, I know there are times when I still wonder if I’ll ever get through my anxiety. I have to remember though that I have made progress, because you know what? I have!

So again, thank you to everyone who follows my blog! Thank you to all of the wonderful people I have met on here and to those of you who have been such amazing friends! Thanks for the incredibly kind and supportive comments and for reminding me that I am not alone in my journey of getting through anxiety!

Thank You,

-B.
