Left Uni, struggling with mental health watch

    I just recently left University. I was studying songwriting and I took a gap year because my anxiety was through the roof and I knew I wasn’t prepared for Uni yet. I spent my gap year making money for uni, studying, and planning everything so I could get there and be in a good position to learn. I put in a lot of effort to get into uni and was let down multiple times before I got in. I knew that I wasn’t overly proud of myself, I more felt exhausted at everything I had to do to get in and couldn’t find focus on the good. When I was at University I moved in with 6 other students, which at first was fantastic and really made uni extra special. Then, as expected, arguments started and I left that house hating living with that many people. Once I’d completed my first year at uni, and in doing so I overcame my stage fright and singing infront of others, I still wasn’t that impressed with anything I’d done. I spent a long stressful summer trying to find another place to live with just one person who I knew, things fell through, my stress was through the roof at this point and I eventually had to live with a stranger so I could just live with one person. Things were going well to begin with, and then as if I was being mocked by some higher power, my housemate ended up being horrible and made multiple complaints about me that could have affected me getting houses in the future. Before I moved to this house I met my boyfriend. Before him ive had severe relationship anxiety and had been single for about 4 years because I just sabotaged every guy I tried to date. When my current boyfriend came along I felt ontop of the world because uni was going well and overall I was happy with life, then as everything started to fall apart my relationship anxiety came back and I’ve been struggling ever since. A few weeks ago I dropped out of uni, realising that music was the only thing I chose to do because I felt I was too stupid to do anything else I was interested in, and since ive moved back home with my parents, away from my boyfriend, away from the city i love, back to a place that is filled with so many negative emotions for me.
    I’ve struggled back here more than I ever have before. I got a job immediately, started working out and doing yoga and eating better, I keep a journal I write in regularly, and have made plans to go get counselling for my anxiety. Despite all of this I’m crying Every day, completely distraught with everything that has happened, And no matter how much I try to pull myself out I just keep spiralling down this hole.
    I am desperate for some different advice. I have done every bit of research on how to forgive myself, care for myself, what to do when I’m anxious. I’ve done it all, I just need a different perspective. So please if anyone has any advice.

    dude the key to getting through anxiety is pretending just pretend to be gutsy and what have you. It also helps that your a songwriter it should give you something to do when it gets stressful. You've got this. Imma suggest an anime that you should relate to it's called your lie in April. if you want I can give you the link.
