members come here to ask what they should do to eliminate their anxiety or how to
get rid of a specific symptom? I was one of those folks who went over and over
things, struggling to find a solution to the way I felt, endlessly trying to
stop myself feeling this way. That was my mistake; I was trying not to feel a
certain way. One thing that I discovered very quickly is that trying to rid myself of anxiety only increases it. However this is
what most people struggle to do.
stress and battle to feel better is what kept me on the anxiety merry-go-round;
it consumed me nearly every day for years.
decision to accept anxiety into my day reliefs so much pressure, stress and
worry and gives my mind and body the space to recover. Don’t get lost in a circle
of self-criticism, wishing you felt differently, the first step to recovery is
accepting how you feel for now. I don't panic when I feel anxiety, I just keep moving forward knowing anxiety cannot harm me.
