We’ve all heard that saying before – ‘there is no competition – it’s YOU vs. YOU’ . For those of us with anxiety, it couldn’t be more true.
For most, “you vs. you” is a way of saying that you should just ignore the competition. The focus, after all, is on being the best version of yourself – not what someone else can do. For those of us with anxiety, it can take on a whole new meaning.
For those of us with anxiety, it can take on a whole new meaning.
It’s “you vs. you” because there are two sides of you – each one fighting the other. It’s “you vs. you” because one side of you is encouraging and optimistic, and the other side is cruel and nasty. It’s black and white; it’s good versus evil; it’s you vs. anxiety you.
Because the real you isn’t flawed, or worthless, or destined to fail – despite what anxiety you may want you to believe. I know the voice can be loud, but don’t let it win.
Keep fighting Strong Babes!
