Sometimes you just have one of those days or weeks when fear, worry, and anxiety goes wherever you go. Whether you're struggling with anxiety attacks and physical symptoms, or constant thoughts that are plaguing you, sit down and take a break. When life begins to be too much, step away but don't let lies rule your mind.

Give yourself some time; you will be OK.

1. "Slow Your Breathe Down" by Future of Forestry

Slow your breath down, just take it slow

Find your heart now, whoa

You can trust and love again, whoa

2. "Without You" by Leslie Odom Jr.

The heart yearns

The tears dry without you

Life goes on

But I'm gone 'cause I die

Without you

3. "Rainbow Connection" by Sleeping At Last

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers and me

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers and me

4. "It's Gonna Be Okay" by Jenn Johnson

Just take one step closer

Put one foot in front of the other

You'll get through this

Just follow the light in the darkness

You're gonna be okay

5. "Stand By You" by Florence and The Machine

So darling, darling stand by me

Oh, stand by me

Oh, stand now

Stand by me

Stand by me

6. "Atlas: Hearing" by Sleeping At Last

"Love is an echo" is woven throughout the song. It gives it a calming, peaceful sound, almost like a beating heart.

7. "How Long Will I Love You" by Ellie Goulding

How long will I love you

As long as stars are above you

And longer if I can

How long will I need you

As long as the seasons need to

Follow their plan

8. "I'll Keep You Safe" by Sleeping At Last

I'll keep you safe

Try hard to concentrate

Hold out your hand

Can you feel the weight of it

The whole world at your fingertips

Don't be, don't be afraid

Our mistakes they were bound to be made

But I promise you I'll keep you safe

9. "Ocean Floor" by Gianna Jessen

And I'm still here in the ocean floor

But I can't feel my heart beat anymore

In this quiet I have changed

'cause I can hear my God call my name

10. "Note To Self" by Ben Rector

And note to self: don't let yourself worry quite as much

It'll end up fine enough

It always has up until now

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
