WHAT IF YOUR ANXIETY ISN'T A BAD THING?
Research shows that people with anxious dispositions have a lot to offer themselves and others. They are typically the first to notice warning signs in a situation. They are also highly motivated and are more compassionate to the suffering of others.
But let's face it, anxiety feels bad and no one wants to feel bad. It is natural to want to get rid of whatever is making you feel bad. But what if your anxiety was not a mental illness? What if it is a part of your genetic makeup that you can't change any more than you can change the color of your eyes?
Anxiety has many sources including heredity, attachment style and stressful life problems. I have seen how people suffering from anxiety attacks try and change what is unchangeable and end up feeling frustrated and hopeless. Let me assure you there is hope.
Whether your anxiety stems from a difficult life situation or your DNA, you have a choice in how you respond to your anxiety.
Many people who experience an anxiety provoking event get stuck in an anxious loop and ruminate on their negative thoughts and bodily sensations. This is where the power of your choice comes in to play. You may not have been able to prevent the experience that caused you anxiety but you can choose how long your suffer in the anxious loop.
Together we will learn how to get out of the anxious loop. You will learn how to go from a triggering event, to anxious loop then quickly onto a more healthy, calming place.
It is time to take back control of your mind.
