Fake It Till You Make It

I’m forcing myself. I realize it and it sucks. At this point I’ve lost touch with surroundings and am trying to force camaraderie and conversation to mask the anxiety.

I realize it and still do it. Why do I feel like I must socialize? It forces me to fake emotions in just not feeling. But I know if I just sit and space out like I want to the stares will come, or the questions get asked.

I just want to sit and daze and let my mind do what it needs to so I can push the impending panic attack further out.

Do what you must to keep yourself calm and focused and most importantly happy. If the ones around you know you well enough they will accept it and let you do what you need to do. Thats what love is. 🙂
