Hey everyone! how are you all tonight?
I know on here, i do try to put on my best face and give good positive vibes to people to help them feel more encouraged and stuff.
but, as some of you may know, i do have generalized anxiety. built up from a lifetime of having to struggle in a tough family situation, and as such it has always been a tough thing for me at times.

i do combat this though, with my martial arts, meditation, and breathing techniques. as well as my art, talking with friends, and finding fun things to watch. this has varying degrees of success for me, from working really well, to barely helping me control myself.
