The thing about an anxiety disorder is that you know it is stupid. You know with all your heart that it wasn’t a big deal and that it should roll off of you. But that is where the disorder kicks in; Suddenly the small thing is very big and it keeps growing in your head, flooding your chest, and trying to escape from under your skin. You know with all of your heart that you’re being ridiculous and you hate every minute of it. The fact that many people don’t recognize or have patience for your illness only makes everything worse.
Ten years of experience (via punkasspoet)
One of the greatest mysteries in life has to be, “why do we continue to care about people who don’t care in return”. A close friend of mine has been going through a rough patch where they felt alone, so I made sure I was always there for them and did everything I could in my power to help them feel loved. Now, when I am at my loneliest they act distant, blaming distance itself and that “things change”. Things don’t change, people do. You just decided to forget all the good that I have done for you, and act like nothing ever happened.
