Hi All,

Hope you're having a great week. There was another post on here that prompted me to start adding more coping skills to my toolbox, and I found some helpful quotes that I wanted to share with you and hopefully they will help you, too.

This quote I found from a CBT website catered to anxiety. The author stressed the importance of this reminders that feelings, although very uncomfortable sometimes, do change:

“I am feeling somewhat nervous, which is natural. When those feelings change I expect to feel calm and clear headed again.”

He also mentioned: "Anxiety is a survival response, not an illness. But it’s a response that can go wrong, sometimes to the point that it hinders rather than helps."
