Today’s topic is mental health is important.
I was not aware what was wrong with me, what it is that a bright and talented girl doesn’t feel confident anymore. What it is that an extrovert now can’t communicate with her dear ones. Why do I get muscle tension, can’t perform good on a test that I prepared for months, answer in class even when I know it’s the correct answer. Why have I started to like my own space with no one inside it, no one. I always feel so stupid of myself. Why can’t I answer people back who are dominating me?
I am sick of these fast heart rates, waking up with the fact that I will have to go out to the real world and talk to people, engage with them. I am tired of being awake every night just overthinking of incidents that cannot exist in real life. Just tired of the constant panic attacks. Why do I feel that every whisper is about me, everyone hates me?
Just because of these things I lost so many important opportunities in my career. One day talking to one of my friends made me realize this is called “Anxiety”. I was still unsure. How could I have a mental illness? I am just 17 years old; I couldn’t believe it at such a young age I have to suffer from anxiety. It surely took time to know mental illness can occur at any age, any time. The only important thing is to find cure to it. As of now you would be familiar with what Anxiety looks like.
Anxiety is a mental illness and trust me it is treatable. Experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. However, people with anxiety disorders frequently have intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Often, anxiety disorders involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear or terror that reach a peak within minutes (panic attacks).
These feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities and are difficult to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger and can last a long time.
You may avoid places or situations to prevent these feelings. Symptoms may start during childhood or the teen years and continue into adulthood. This was just a brief look on how a person dealing with a mental illness feels like. If you are not happy or healthy mentally your physical health will surely affect. Being healthy mentally can lead you to a successful life. Small issues in your like takes a huge toll and leads to some serious mental issues but trust me you can avoid it, you can get away with it, it is curable. Practice a healthy lifestyle.
Meditate every day. Practice Yoga. Practice positivity. Love yourself. Remember mental health is important.
