A transparent conversation about anxiety
Spencer Welsh shares his experience about living with anxiety and offers a relatable perspective to anyone who is struggling with anxiety.
Anxiety sucks. It sucks. Like, there is no two ways about it. [MUSIC PLAYING]
It's kind of hard to put into words exactly what it feels like. It can be really all-consuming.
I mean, it feels very hard at times to try to separate yourself from this all-encompassing feeling
that everything is bad. For me, the difference between anxiety and depression is sort of the difference between the past
and the future. Anxiety, in my experience, is all about what's going to happen. Depression, in my mind, has always
been about ruminating on stuff in the past. You just sit there and you just keep thinking about it
and thinking about it and thinking about it and thinking about it. And it won't go away. And it makes you feel terrible. And you don't want to do anything because then you
start to question, well, if I made these mistakes or whatever, am I worthwhile as a person?
I cannot tell you how thankful I am that I spoke to a therapist.
And I do think that just having someone to talk to in a structured sort of setting like that where it's
just like you can just, ah, like get all that stuff out of your head, can be really helpful.
So that would be my advice for anybody who maybe thinks that they are dealing with this but doesn't know what to do next.
