You are not your depression - Prince Ea

"You are this witness, the perceiver of depression, and that which perceives depression is not depressed.
I realised it wasn't me; I observed it, allow it to come and go without resisting it.
This is freedom.
This is truth.
You are greater than anything that comes and goes."

- Prince Ea

Things People With Anxiety Want Their Friends to Know

We are not alone; we are all this together, and we can help and support one another in our individual and collective struggles together.

It may seem irrational to me, but what I'm anxious about is very real for me.
I never know when it's going to hit me. And when it does, I just need you to support me.
Don't give up on me when I isolate myself.
Just having someone you love and trust reminding you to breathe sometimes really helps.
Even when things are wonderful, I'm always waiting for something horrible to happen.
Sometimes when I'm feeling the anxiety, I have no idea why I'm anxious.
For real - it's not you, it's me. Generalised anxiety feels like drowning all the time.
Anxiety doesn't have a "look". I don't have to be trembling or hyperventilating to be anxious.
I need you to reach out to me, even when I'm so anxious I've stopped leaving the house.
I analyse things constantly because of anxiety. I cannot turn my brain off and it can be exhausting.
Anxiety is not an attitude.
Most of the time you won't know I'm having anxiety unless I tell you.
Sometimes I just need to be alone. It's not personal.
I'm still me. I'm not my anxiety.

Energy Healing for Enneagram Type 4

I find this article useful for knowing the various ways in which I - as an individualist - can find healing from low self-esteem and self-worth - often due to being my own inner critic - and make friends with the sense of loneliness and emptiness, as well as learn to feel at home with reality.

For example, I can learn to open my root chakra to become more grounded.

Feeling at home in reality

Fours tend to escape reality into a world of idealized fantasy; this weakens their sense of feeling at home in reality. Their tendency to feel unappreciated can also increase this sense of alienation. Strengthening the Root chakra can help to repair the damage caused by the Four's lack of presence in the physical world.
