Anxiety

My anxiety has peaked to a whole new level. Every time there's a protest in our city, my sister gets called out, which means my anxiety kicks in. I'm constantly worrying about her and her safety. I told myself yesterday night, "It's okay to put down the phone, you can't keep doing this to yourself."

I can't save everyone.
I can't stop what's happening.
I can't stop what tomorrow will bring.
I can't make things right.

But I can control what's in my reach.

I can pray for everyone's safety.
I can pray for what's happening.
I can pray for a better tomorrow.
I can pray for God to make things right.

It's okay to take a break from everything that's happening around you. You're not being selfish. You're not walking away from anything. You're simply taking a break. Take time to reset you're well-being. It's OKAY.
