Today Anxiety Won. Tomorrow we'll try again.


Today, anxiety won. Last week, and the week before that, anxiety also won.

Tomorrow, we will try again. And hopefully, anxiety will not win.

Anxiety is vicious. Some days it's in the background. Other days, it can't be seen at all. And then there are the days where anxiety comes crashing through and everything grinds to a halt.

That day is today.

But tomorrow, we will get up and try again. We'll put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward.

The thing with anxiety is that if someone tells you that they are okay, chances are that they are struggling. If you know someone who has anxiety, sit with them. You don't necessarily have to say anything, just sitting and being there is enough.

Earlier this year O had a few very rough weeks as O was physically attacked at school three weeks in a row. Thankfully, O has an amazing support team of staff behind her and supporting her at school.

Since then, we've had a few more rough days (and quite a few weeks,) where O's anxiety has won. But while anxiety slows O down and temporarily pauses O from doing what O loves to do, anxiety doesn't stop O from trying again. And as long as we don't stop trying, we'll be okay.

O, you are strong, you are a warrior, you are awesome. Love you my sweet child xx
