A Breakup Letter To My Anxiety

Dear Anxiety,

You showed up when I least expected it. You started off as a whisper, but you continued as a loud bang. You would say things like, “You’re not good enough, you don’t deserve good things, you’re flawed.” I tried to brush you off. You would go away, but only for you to return even

You made me overthink every single decision that I made. When I finally mustered the courage to make a decision, you assured me that I was in the wrong. I stopped trusting myself and only listened to you. You knew what was best, right? So you guided me for years to come. You started seeping through every aspect of my life until you took over every part of it. It happened so fast. It took me by surprise, but I am sure you weren’t surprised. That is exactly what you do.
