Voices of a Battered Soul #16: Side Effects

Mind racing

Thoughts betraying

Heart pounding

Pulse throbbing

Stomach twisting

Feet tapping

Knees bouncing

Fists clenching

Nails biting

Hair pulling

Breath gasping

Tears spilling

Anxiety winning…

(Battered souls have endured a lifetime of abuse: emotional, verbal, physical, sexual, or even all of the above. This leaves behind scars, some of which never truly heal. Although a battered soul may find the strength and courage to move forward in life and discover happiness, many times the voices of their scars whisper to them late at night. This is a detailed account of the whispering voices of one such battered soul. If you are a battered soul, I hope you may find strength in knowing you are not alone in your suffering.)

    1. Thank you, my friend. You’re right; anxiety really can be a monster! Most days I do pretty good. Other days, it eats at me. I wonder what it must be like to not deal with it?? I hear people say they don’t deal it. That’s so weird to me. 😂😂
