The problem with a history of depression and anxiety is that you can never know if you’re “just having one of those weeks” or if you’re sliding back down into those places you swore you’d never go again.

just gonna say this: if someone has social anxiety and they ask you something akin to ‘are you mad at me’ or ‘do you hate me’, it isn’t because they don’t trust you, it’s because their brain literally tells them that all the time

it’s not a personal slight, it’s insecurity caused by mental illness

Anxiety really cramps my style like how am I going to seem chill and fun if I often start trembling and breathing heavily and developing a look of impending doom in my eyes

If Iron Man can do it, so can I

this is literally one of the most inspirational things

Can’t go over it.

Can’t go under it.

Can’t go around it.

Gotta go through it.

Trying to explain depression or anxiety to someone who’s never experienced it.

This belongs here.

IF TONY STARK HAS ANXIETY AND BRUCE BANNER TRIED TO KILL HIMSELF AND THEY CAN STILL SAVE THE WORLD AND THEN CAN STILL BE OKAY THEN I CAN MAKE IT THROUGH HIGHSCHOOL

THIS IS THE BEST MOTIVATOR I HAVE SEEN

Something is happening in your life!” and then asks, “Is it a good thing?” Both the “Yes!” and the “No!” arrows lead to the word “Anxiety” written in large red letters and underlined. Arrows lead from “Anxiety” to “Avoidance” to “Guilt” and back to “Anxiety”, creating a closed loop.]
