As a person with a lot of anxiety, low self-esteem, and a propensity toward overthinking everything always, I feel guilty a lot. A lot a lot. I truly believe that this guilt is counterproductive and I don’t believe it’s almost ever helpful. So I try not to feel it. This is easier said than done. […]
My anxiety and OCD has been through the roof lately. Not so much my worrying or checking the doors to make sure they’re locked again and again.
