Pour Your Heart Out - Dear Anxiety

Congratulations Shell for having Pour Your Heart Out going for two years! Thank you for giving us all a place to say the things we can't.

Dear Anxiety, 

Your reared your ugly head into my life as a child, but I would never realize this until I became an adult. Growing up as the daughter of an alcoholic allowed you to sneak into my life. 

We didn't became acquainted until you came out a few years back in the form of panic attacks and depression. I can't say I was happy to meet you, but at least you waited until I was older to give me the best shot you had. 

I deal with you everyday. You are a full part of my life. I am ok with this. I am strong and I work every day towards getting you out of my life for good and learning how to cope with you. 

Just know, every day I get stronger and I am ready to fight you even harder. You can give me your best shot.....I'm ready for you. 


  1. Growing up can be so difficult in a perfect setting. Add some awful like this and it's almost impossible to come out untouched.

    Have a terrific day Lydia. Big hug. :)

  2. Anxiety is so hard to deal with. I am glad that you are fighting. You are obviously very strong and will beat anxiety down.

  3. Love the strength in this! xo
