outside the lines
My anxiety seems to heighten all my senses, which make my daily tasks difficult because I feel like I’m getting overloaded with information all the time. When it gets too much for me to handle, I’ll get a panic attack. This generally happens once or twice a day, but like most people I have good days and bad days. When I feel good, I still feel like my senses are heightened, it makes the places I see almost every day seem unearth like. Probably because my head is free to wander and play. When I dare to be vulnerable and just enjoy myself I feel truly alive.
I’d like to show people that although an illness or condition makes you feel (very) limited, it can have positive side effects. You need to be willing to look for them, it’s easy to get stuck in the bad… But it could change the way you feel about your life considerably. Vulnerability is very important to truly connect with other people. It’s what makes us human and life worth living. We are so easily ashamed for being vulnerable, but that only stands in the way of our happiness. I feel my life is more intens and beautiful because of my condition.
