My anxiety likes to tell me over and over daily that I am not enough. What exactly does that mean? It means that whatever I am striving to do (for instance this blog) that I am not good enough to do it. I recently started doing some harder work at my job as a medical coder. My first thoughts were I can’t do this, I will never be good enough to do this, and so on. In these moments I really have to turn inward and ask myself if what I am thinking is a true fact. I am a naturally negative thinking person so I have to constantly tell myself over and over that I can do hard things and I am enough. On thing that has helped me is I have changed all my passwords to uplifting phrases so I have to type them over and over while I am working. I also found some really great audios on youtube where I can listen to positive affirmations and can repeat them. If you are struggling with negative thoughts about yourself, I HIGHLY recommend this! Having anxiety for me is going to be a lifelong battle so if I can help one person feel a little better about themselves then I have done my job. I love helping people and talking about mental health so please reach out to me if there is something you want me to write a blog on!
Love you guys!
