    Those feelings of not having control can feel overwhelming. The best we can all do is take a deep breath and realize we can only do what we can do. Start with your immediate surroundings, try to be in control of your emotions and actions without requiring yourself to be “perfect.” It’s ok to fail. It’s ok to fall, the main thing is that you are moving forward, which means your fears and anxiety may “feel” overwhelming but in the full scheme of things you’re kicking anxiety’s butt just by moving forward a little each time!

    Think of it this way, the next time you feel your anxiety taking over, think to yourself “What am I so anxious about? I mean really? I’ve accomplished ____, I’ve ____ and I’m pretty awesome. I got this!”

    You got this!
