The more I grow with my anxiety, the more I want to experience on my own

I have always relied on my parents for everything, and they have always been able to provide it, which I will forever be grateful, but there’s just days where I don’t really feel like interacting with anyone I live with, and not because I’m in a mood or anything, it’s just the energy I put into an interaction, is energy I’d rather spend on something else. I guess this is why I’m always out with friends, and if I’m not, I try to leave the house at least once, just to get some space.

When people say “I want to see you happy” without knowing anything about me or my life it offends me

Keywords: life

And there are people who suggest life options to me because they think that makes me happy. And the worst part is when I am blamed for somebody else’s unhappiness. First of all why is everyone assuming I am not happy in life. Just because I made different choices in my life doesn’t mean that I am unhappy. Lets say suppose it seems that way. Then its on me to find a way back. I get when people care and want to check how I am doing. But I feel suffocated when people push me to choose their version of ‘happy life’. Every single person in this world is responsible for one’s own Happiness. So I feel its unfair whenever I get questioned for not thinking about somebody else’s happiness.

I know who I am, and how I got here, but who do I want to be now / next / moving forward?

Keywords: {0}

It is a simple question, really. I have built the whole foundation up to this point. I have chosen what makes me who I am. I have eliminated the things I don’t want to be, absorbed and molded who I want to be, so why can’t I just answer the damn question??? And as I sit here, feeling a bit ashamed, a bit scared, a bit nervous, a bit pissed, I realize that my my identity has not been nurtured or cared for in a LONG time. And the ton of bricks hits me.

It’s taken me 43 years to get here, but I’ve arrived in this space where I am now

I’m not sorry I walked away from everyone and everything.  I’m sorry for the people in my life who couldn’t love themselves enough to be by my side but I know they have their own journeys in life to attend to.  I have no more time to waste on them.  I have my own life now.  I’ve given myself the gift of myself.
