BREATHE

As I touched in my About me page, the main reason for me starting this Blog is because I truly believe that crafting is a huge part in my mental health healing process, it literally helps breathe. However crafting alone might not be enough.

 I have come to accept that anxiety is part of my life, it’s not something that is just going to disappear overnight. There is no magic spell to make it go away.

And that’s because EVERYONE on the planet will experience anxiety at some point in their life, it’s impossible to avoid it, it’s part of our survival mechanism that signals our body to danger with a fight or flight response.

However, what I CAN control is how I react to it and what I do about it, I don’t have to suffer in silence or be ashamed of it

There are so many people and organizations out there that can help, so please reach out if you feel like life is just getting too much.
