I knew that therapy was not the quick route, but I was also aware that it was extremely thorough.
Pulling off the head of a weed, won’t stop it from re-growing eventually.
A decade of anxiety is never going to be resolved in the click of a finger. You have to push yourself, you have to know when something is too much and you have to give yourself a massive pat on the back when it’s going right, even when that’s baby steps.
Over the past six months, I’ve seen the most improvement in my anxiety.
Suddenly the little things I never had to worry about, were big things and with my channel still growing, I knew these would need to be tackled head on.
Although I never made it aware how bad the bad moments were, around the end of 2014, they were particularly awful and I was done being “Zoella with anxiety”.
I think this was one of the many reasons I didn’t seek help to begin with.
I hadn’t seen anyone else talking about their experiences with anxiety openly and although it scared me to do it I wanted to help others and to share my experience.
