Stop trying to glorify and make anxiety/low self esteem a cute or desirable attribute to you who are. Because when you experience a panic attack or go through the mental marathon of trying to overcome your esteem issues, you wish that no one ever have to deal with such a mentally and emotionally taxing experience.
Faking anxiety doesn’t do anything to make you more deserving of attention. Pretending you have low self esteem isn’t something you do to have more people fawn over you.
Experiencing anxiety that induces a panic attack where your only outlet is to cry or hyperventilate no matter where you are and who you’re with is a harrowing experience. Not being comfortable in your own skin is one of the toughest things to deal with. Why people want to pretend they’re dealing with something no one should deal with, I have no idea.
Just. Stop. Please.
