Then I looked on as my supposed best friend started talking to “my girl….”
I could feel my pulse start to the race, then the panic and fear kicked in. I wanted to be the one talking to her, and I knew that if I had more self-confidence, I could have handled it much better
She ended up with my friend…. whom I had to drop off at his house. The feeling in the pit of my stomach couldn’t get any worse than that…
I knew I couldn't go on living like this and I needed to figure out how to break the cycle once and for all.
I knew I wanted to start living, enjoying life. Not just surviving.
The “Ahah” Moment
I figured out a way how to “retrain my brain” to push past the fear and control the anxiety I soon found myself Making decisions on what was best for me, and not for others.
Taking risks regardless of what others may think With a newly developed self-confidence, I had stopped overthinking things; no anxiety, no worry, no fear.
I was finally living, not just surviving
