If anxiety were as easy to resolve as some people think it is, you’d be able to:
- Talk your anxiety into doing a disappearing act
- Figure out the right rituals to keep it under control
- Find its roots and yank them out
- Hypnotize it away, or
- Snap your fingers and make it gone
The truth is that anxiety and panic are dirty, rotten scoundrels who don’t play fair.
Dealing with them sucks in ways that people who don’t have an anxiety disorder can’t begin to understand.
There’s no cajoling these scoundrels, bribing them, or trying to placate them.
They like the power they steal from you, and they will do everything they can to keep it.
But that’s not to say you can’t outsmart them!
Other people have found ways to free themselves from the ongoing suffering these two have caused, and so have I.
And that was after they knocked me down, stomped all over me and then kicked me to the curb.
I’m not saying it’s easy to get the upper hand with them, but if I can do it, then so can you!
There are many reasons why you’re anxious
Some anxiety can have its roots in past traumatic events that occurred throughout your life, or at different points in time during it.
Big changes or lots of smaller changes can combine to increase your feelings of anxiety. Even seemingly harmless incidents that occur during your day can add up and trigger an attack.
Anxiety that would be easy to handle normally can escalate quickly when you don’t take care of yourself or when you’ve got additional challenges with perfectionism, low self-esteem, stress, lack of sleep, shame, and/or depression.
Though anxiety has many sources and is unique to each individual, there is one thing each person must do, including you, in order to outsmart it.
You need to:
- Trust that you too can put anxiety in its rightful place;
- Trust that you can find and gather together the people, processes, and approaches that singularly or in combination give you the supportive framework you need;
- Trust that you are worthy and capable of doing that work and that you can go the distance;
- Trust that you will come through this better than you were before anxiety screwed with you;
- Trust that you can give up your expectations of what should be done – so you can do what needs to be done – for you.
Because anxiety and panic can really do a number on you, sometimes it’s hard to believe that you actually have a chance at getting the upper hand.
