Overcoming Separation Anxiety

I never thought separation anxiety could affect me as an adult, but here I am, struggling with it every day. It’s been tough trying to explain it to my friends and family, and even tougher to find the right support. But I’ve come to realize that it’s okay to seek help and not have everything figured out. I’ve been working on building my coping mechanisms, seeking therapy, and finding a supportive community. It’s a journey that’s been challenging, but I know that with time and support, I can overcome this. To anyone else going through the same thing, just know that you’re not alone and seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. We can get through this together.

I’ve found that having a supportive community makes a huge difference, so I’m glad you’re doing that too. Just remember that progress can be slow, but every small step forward is still a step in the right direction. Keep leaning on your support system and taking care of yourself - you’re doing great. And if you ever need to chat, I’m here.
