I have a montra I repeat to myself while meditating. That really helps me. I like focused meditation because my thoughts can go everywhere, especially through a difficult time of anxiety. If I’m on the verge of a panic attack I do the 16 second meditation, where you breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, breathe out for 4 counts, and hold. When you’re on the verge of a panic attack, you get short of breath and you can lose track of your breath and actually inhale too much oxygen. It’s important to re focus your breath. I use this quick breathing technique if i ever feel anxious in public, ill just excuse myself and go to a quiet place, maybe a public rest room, and breathe by myself. I also like to have a glass of water with me whenever i can. I’ve never tried any stuff you can get at organic stores for anxiety, but some of my friends have oils and stuff you can buy that you can put under your tongue that helps with anxiety. I’m sure if you go in one of those stores your could ask the sales associate and they’d help you find something.
I’m pro smoking weed if it’s comfortable for you. I know for a lot of people, now including myself, it can give people anxiety, and it can also increase depression, but for a lot of people it’s enjoyable. I don’t smoke anymore, don’t smoke weed if you’re just smoking from peer pressure, smoke if you want to not for anyone else.
oh wow thank you so much <3 you have no idea how much that means to me! xxx
ANNA: my legs are shaken from the words you’re say
High school is filled with angst and conflict, and people, and experiences. I don’t know what you would define as “fun” because it’s kind of fun having an angsty period, I think every teen does, but I think high school was the most fun in grade 11 and 12 when I started to discover things about myself, my sexuality, my friends, and started to feel more comfortable in my skin, and started caring less about what other people thought of me.
haha thank you <3
