Anxious Girl//Big City

I went to Chicago, IL this weekend. I wanted to share some of my photos with you all, along with give you some inspiration!

As most of you know, I struggle almost daily with my anxiety. I decided that I wanted to go to Chicago, and I wasn’t going to let my anxiety keep me from going! I made up my mind that I was going to be strong, and go on an adventure. And, that’s exactly what I did. 

Now, while I have learned to control my anxiety disorder… to an extent… my sister is a slightly different story. She has severe anxiety as well, and just has not learned how  put mind over matter all the time yet. But Guys! I am so proud of her. She wanted to go to Chicago with us! Usually, this wouldn’t even cross her mind. 

She did not let her anxiety define her, and took the five hour trip. She was so excited to see everything. She even chose some of our activities, like the river boat tour. 

Moral of my story: DO NOT LET YOUR DISORDER CONTROL YOUR LIFE. Go on adventures. See new things. You will be so glad you did it. There’s no feeling like the feeling of overcoming your fears, and living! 

So, here’s to me and my sister overcoming our disorder, and everyone else like us doing the same. We are going to live life to the fullest, and nothing is going to stop us!
