As humans, we all take part in the habit of overthinking. No matter if situations are big or small, it’s easy to overanalyze them. Overthinking only leads to one thing, STRESS, and stress doesn’t go with any of my outfits. I try my hardest to refrain from anxiety and stress, but sometimes it pops up here and there. In middle school, I had the worst anxiety that often led me to stress out about little things like test/quizzes, public speaking, and meeting new people. My anaxiety was so bad, my Mom had to give me stress ball. A stress ball is made out of a squishy foam texture, and when I felt nervous, stressed, or anxious, I would squeeze it to reduce my anxiety. It wasn’t until my sophomore year of high school where I finally began to shed some skin and blossom into a young lady who was aware of all the things she should accomplish. Once I let go of stressing over things that had no control over me, I realized that I control me and my emotions.
How we feel shows in the type of outfits we choose to wear. When I’m not feeling well, I know I don’t dress to the best of my ability. Stress and anxiety doesn’t match my outfit nor style. I stay away from stress because, number one, it is unhealthy for the heart and body, and number two, who likes the feeling of being down and out? I know that when I wake up, I feel too blessed to be stressed. When you step into the right attitude it’s so much easier to step into the right outfit.
