I'm also at that point in my life where "giving up" is starting to sound pretty good. But one thing that keeps me grounded is my family, I'm single but I still have a mother, brother and sisters and I can't bare the thought of letting them down. So recently, I decided to meditate more to cultivate a healthier mindset. Its a process but I do see immediate benefits to it, thinking positive of yourself by crushing negative thoughts is pretty satisfying and does seem to work as long as I stick to the practice. Simple mantras I like to think of while I'm out are, "I look really great today," or "I refuse to be silenced by anxiety." Pretty simple thoughts but powerful statements for me on a personal level are the ones that seem to work miracles. They may be short lived miracles but they do make my daily life much more bearable.
I really think the key to overcoming anxiety/depression is positive thinking and eating healthy, too!
Don't give up!!!
