“To all the survivors struggling tonight, I see you and your strength, you are not weak. I’m doing this right now because maybe at least it can help my mind to recover from worrying from thinking. Maybe you’re crying or sobbing so hard right now and you can barely breathe. you know what? Breathe! You’re going to be okay. Breathe, and you know you can survive. It’s painful but you can sit with it and eventually they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon. You are not your anxiety.”
Sofia also added that taking control of your brain is nothing to be ashamed of. She also continued that everyone feels anxious but at different extents.
“It just takes time and effort to take control of your brain. it’s nothing to be ashamed of, but to be honest I was real scared to tell my friends, my loved ones, and my family about the anxiety attacks i have been experiencing. Everyone is an individual and everyone gets anxious, just on different levels and to different extents.”
Sofia also encouraged people to overcome their own anxiety. She also added situations that could overcome their anxiety for a short time. She shared that she hasn’t contacted her friends as her brain had been messed up.
“Love yourself be compassionate, give yourself time. welcome it. Write about it, laugh, love and realize that you’re enough. These past few days I haven’t been replying to my friends. The reason behind it is that my brain’s a little messed up sometimes. What that means in the simplest possible terms, is that a lot of time I feel very, very low. Think about bad thoughts and just spend time in bed.”
Sofia shared how she experiences her anxiety: overthinking. She also admitted that she wanted to become a better person. She also reassured anxiety survivors to hold on.
“I over think things, useless things, that’s so unfair right? that’s a big part of why I’m trying to become a better person, to control my mind because i love the people in my life and this anxiety makes me treat them like I don’t. Listen there will be a good days, and there will be bad days that will almost make you feel you want to give up, but hold just hold on, please always try to hold on. you are not crazy, you are fine, I believe you can make it.”
Sofia also uplifted other anxiety survivors and motivated them to try to feel happy. It may be tiring but it will always be okay.
“No matter how hard we try to feel okay, no matter how hard we try to feel happy, no matter how hard we try to make things right, no matter how hard we try to think we are fine. Let’s not force it, let it process slowly. It is hard to feel the pain, it is hard not to feel okay, yes it is tiring. But these things will help you to be strong. strong enough to forgive, to understand, to love, to respect, to smile genuinely, to live the life to the fullest without hurting anybody.”
