I can feel anxiety whisper it whisper
not enough quiet time in my head
DO DO DO DO DO!
No! Should Be
→ I am RUSHING AHEAD
…I need to think for a while…
but it’s whispering whispering
Abuse victims feel anxious much of the time. We don’t know when the next attack will come or what will spark it. The kicker is that after living with this anxiety for long enough, it feels “normal”. It is almost impossible to think and dream for yourself when so much fear and anxiety fills your mind.
I forgot how anxious I was until after I left my ex and experienced peace for the first time in 18 years. There is such a difference from when I lived with the abuse! If I’m not yet at peace, that’s okay. It will come. Whatever “this” is beats what I used to feel by a mile!
