What do you do about your anxiety?

Anxiety, it’s tough, it’s upsetting, sometimes we don’t know what to do with it, sometimes when we talk about it, it sounds like its a separate entity. Anxiety is often explained as if its is separate from us, as if its not our own system functioning for us, being spoken about as if it’s in control.

Have we forgotten that we are in charge and what we think, happens? If we aren’t in control of it, who is? Is it in control? No, but it makes us think like that! The anticipation of it is horrible, the thought of it is scary and overwhelming.

It sounds harsh to be writing as if its easy to get rid of it, as if it’s simple to change how you think. How do we cope with a thought pattern that we don’t like? What do we do to help ourselves when these thoughts happen?

Take a breath, give yourself that moment you need. Be kind to yourself. Do you think these things don’t matter? Yes they do….
