As a person with Anxiety and Depression, I know first hand that motivational quotes that mean well can sometimes have a the opposite effect. For me they made things worse and sent me further down into a deep dark hole.
So today, these quotes are curated by me, someone with anxiety and depression who understands; to you on whatever day you are having, be it good, bad, ugly, or meh.
May these quotes help you through your day and help you overcome your anxiety like they have for me.
I stand with you in solidarity and with love,
