Anxiety? Need some advice.

So I’ve never been the one to have anxiety. I rarely ever got emotional. About a month ago, with college approaching I felt something uncomfortable rising up. It was kind of on the wall, tipping left and right, and so the week before college I decided to eat some shrooms with my friends because it was our last week with eachother. Long story short it was going great, we were having a blast. Then out of nowhere I started freaking out. It lasted about 30-45min I’d say and then slowly dissapeared. I was back to dancing and having a good time. Thereafter nothing really happened for a couple days. I was kinda out of it but that’s about it. The night before going off to college a thunder storm was rolling in and for some reason I became really scared. Lightning was striking everywhere. Literally terrified. I was kinda panicked the rest of the night. I woke up feeling halfway decent and decided to go on a run to clear my mind. After that I finished packing and headed off with my dad to college, the whole ride up I was anxious and uncomfortable for obvious reasons. I know I’m in a new state, with a new life, and new responsibilities but this whole past month has been filled with anxiety. It really sucks because I know it’s all in my head, but it NEVER fully goes away. Basically what I’m trying to get out of this post is that can this terrifying anxiety be overcome? Will it go away? Anyone had any personal experience?

First off your not experiencing anxiety. Let’s phrase it different. We don’t want you put in the world thinking your going to have an anxiety attack, because you won’t. Your perfectly fine and your even doing great. You get to go to college! You get to be in a new state! You have friends! You got to go out dancing! You even did some mushrooms life is groovy for you man. Right now your just a bit nervous give your self time to acclimate to your new surroundings your a stud once you get both of your feet on the ground your going to give those educational studies hell!

this is really normal… although the normal is uncomfortable. we all go through it at one point or another, and all it does is enrich our lives. know that this uncomfortable feeling is just temporary, and soon you will find your place. think positively.

Believe in your self and anything outside of this shouldn’t be taken seriously. although the pathway to mindfulness is through a sensory sequence within a range of opportunity – what really matters is to not take life too seriously so we can bask in the moments of truly being present.
