“Okay, I feel like I have to share this right now in this moment. I woke up feeling a little scared this morning due to fear and anxiety.
“When you’re dealing with a mental health condition, juggling different jobs, going on a self-healing journey and experiencing a spiritual awakening all at the same time—it can get pretty overwhelming.
“I understand that there will really be days when uncomfortable feelings such as anxiety, fear, shame, guilt and doubt naturally arise and there’s nothing else to do but to just hold space for them and let them come.
“Personally, I find that the best thing to do when this happens is to surrender to the present moment. Do not resist. Allow the present moment to unfold before you as though you chose it.
“Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Breathe and remember that you are not your thoughts. You are your soul. You are your heart. You are your breath.
“Cry if you must but just keep breathing and hold yourself gently through the process. Focus on your breath, stay present and be here NOW. Because if not now, when? When will you let go of all that pain inside of you that’s been holding you back from being your best and most authentic Self?
“Today, in this moment, I learned that the more we let go, the more we become free. Holding on to pain will only poison your soul. Hold on to hope. Hold on to peace. Hold on to happiness instead,” Maxene wrote on Instagram.
