your anxiety might not always be a rational or “normal” response to a situation, and that’s okay. it doesn’t give anyone the right to make you feel stupid or guilty for it. that includes you, too. just because you’re experiencing anxiety over something that might seem silly to other people doesn’t mean your feelings aren’t valid or real. they should always be treated with kindness and sympathy.
i’m that friend that has to walk behind the group when the path isn’t big enough. i’m that friend that gets cut off in the conversation. i’m that friend that gets left behind when i asked for them to wait for me. i’m that friend that doesn’t get invited to hang out alot. i’m that friend that if i want to go to the mall or some place with a friend i have to be the one to invite people to make sure i get included. i’ll always be that friend.
