So, today I wanted to join my fellow blogger friends and answer some questions for you, created by Beckie over at Beckie’s Mental Mess. I LOVE these kinds of posts as I love answering questions (it actually helps me find out more about myself and my opinions, thoughts and feelings towards things) and I also love seeing my followers responses too!
Here are a few coping statements, do you agree or disagree? Even if your answer is yes or no, please explain:
- This situation of sitting on a fully packed train either makes you feel uncomfortable or unpleasant, but I can accept it?
No. I would find this extremely hard and even the thought of it makes me anxious. Hopefully in the future my answer will be yes. I have things to work on , definitely.
- Can I ride out the wave of anxiety, or do I feel like I need professional help now?
I feel I need professional help now, as I’ve been dealing with anxiety for years and am unsure where to go from here. I can’t deal with it alone.
- Do you practice coping skills? If so, what works best for you?
I try to practice mindfulness, for example naming 5 things around myself I can see. This helps with grounding myself, however being so anxious makes it hard to focus, so this doesn’t always help.

Coping mechanisms can be so hard to develop, but they are life-changing once we find ones that work. I like your method to count / look for the things around you!
