Anxiety

I see you, sweet girl.

 

I know you always choose to see the good in people and how you help people see their own worth.

 

You even go as far as to find the silver lining in their struggles.

 

But, what I also see, is how you’re constantly battling your own darkness. Your head and your heart don’t always get along.

 

On the outside, you are cool, calm, and collected, never letting anyone see you stumble.

 

But, on the inside, your head is on a loop of hypotheticals and “what if” dilemmas.

 

Raging right under the surface is a constant state of doubt, fear, and self-isolation.

 

I know you can’t help it that your head overanalyzes every social encounter and points out all the ways you think you’ve fallen short of perfect.

 

You hold a flawless version of yourself you think the world wants to see.
