This is very important to remember. No matter how discouraged you get, just remember thus: Someone out there enjoys your work. If nothing else, do it for them!

Agreed. For someone like me, this speaks volumes. I want to reblog this, for myself, everyday. I do get discouraged when I go unnoticed for a majority of the time. I do want to give up sometimes. But writing is why I was born, I feel. It’s what I love, and live, to do. Being invisible hurts; not knowing your work is being read and acknowledged works in a bittersweet kind of way. I should write for them, and because it makes me happy.
People with anxiety:
- Know the worry is irrational
- Want to calm down but can’t
- Hate the fact that breathing feels like you are trying to breathe rocks instead of air
- Feel like they are drowning and suffocating. Telling them to just take a breath and calm down doesnt help.
- Want to stop shaking but can’t control their limbs.
- Just plain feel horrible and embarrassed.
Now I kinda understand anxiety from my friends a little
- Gruff men who get all soft and happy when they’re with you
- Big men with calloused hands who touch you like you’re something incredibly special
- Grumpy men who chuckle at your bad jokes
- Calm men who get protective and irrational and then pretend like they didn’t
- Stoic men who look at you with gentle smiles on their face when you’re not looking at them with an expression that sort of says “I can’t believe s/he’s with me.”
