I was gonna say "challenging" but some days when you're in control and you can manage to quiet your thoughts you do indeed feel empowered. I say "empowered" because people with anxiety are still able to live "normal" lives (as society would phrase it). They can have relationships, kids, pretty much anything they desire as much as the next person only you have to fight for it harder. That challenge in every day makes you strong. On the days that you feel strong does anyone feel empowered too?
CMF i also burn up alot of my anxiety while running. Im actually a better runner now than i used to be and enjoy it alot more. I run every day and it really seems to help.
The fact that you can still go on even though you have anxiety makes you a strong person even though you dont feel like one.
