Hello dearest! first of: everybody’s experience is different and what helps me may not help you. you kinda have to try out different things and see what works the best for you. here’s some things that has helped me:
Talk to a professional. seriously, this has helped me so much and is probably the best advice I can give you.
Study it! the more you know about anxiety, why you get it (there are more reasons for anxiety that you think) and how it effects you the easier it gets to deal with.
Confide in someone close. Because even though you might be embarrassed or trying to not burden you family/friends, you don’t have to keep it locked inside. Keeping it locked up or trying to just not think about it only helps fuel and build the anxiety and it gets worse.
Understand this: we all have anxiety. it’s not something that happens out of the blue. it’s in our DNA. for example: when you’re taking an exam you need anxiety to achieve your best. no anxiety: you don’t worry about failing and you don’t do your best. a healthy amount of anxiety: you don’t want to fail and you study hard to do your best on your test. the anxiety heightens your mental capacity. too much anxiety: the worry and stress gets too much and you can’t focus and you don’t achieve your best. the anxiety debases your mental capacity.
these are just some things you can do, but you should start of with these. (please note that I am not a professional and can only speak from personal experience).
