Anxiety Is Not A Choice

Anxiety Is Not A Choice

Anxiety is not a choice (so please stop telling us to chill)

Many people think that individuals with anxiety and depression can wake up one day and decide to ‘get better’.
That we can wake up one day and decide to ‘smile, chug coffee, and deal with it’. I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but anxiety isn’t something that we can just ‘turn off’. Anxiety isn’t something that we can choose to have on a Monday, and choose to not have it on a Sunday. Anxiety isn’t a decision. It isn’t a voluntary thing that we want to have in our lives, day in and day out.
