Hi, I’m Maria!

Welcome to my blog. 

I have decided to document my experience with anxiety and social anxiety here, on BluMind. My childhood and teenage years have been an ongoing struggle with intrusive thoughts, shyness and failed attempts to be ‘like others’.

The inability to understand my reactions and explain to my family why I ‘behave like that’ brought so much frustration that left me almost on the brink of desperation.

My goal is to explore and research in as much depth as I can essential topics for our mental health and share with you my insights.

Living with anxiety is sometimes a very lonely journey. But it doesn’t have to be like that. It can become an adventure that leads you to overcome personal challenges and even get closer to others like you.

I just want you to know that you are not alone. Every day millions of people hide behind forced smiles and suffer in silence. Let us talk about mental health and end the stigma. It’s ok not to be ok. Even better, it’s ok to KNOW WHY you are not ok.

You will find here book reviews and articles related to introversion, emotions, depression and anxiety.

Mental problems can happen to everyone at almost any age.
