Have you noticed the more you resist anxiety the more it persists? The more you try and fight anxiety, the more it fights back.
So, what do you do - fight harder?
Although that’s a natural reaction, there’s no point. High anxiety is an opponent you’re never going to beat. Why? Because the opponent is YOU!
You may as well stand in front of the mirror throwing punches at yourself until you’re tired of swinging and missing.
Save yourself a lot of grief and stop fighting anxiety. There simply is no point.
One of the first steps to overcoming high anxiety is to understand it’s not your enemy. Put your arm around it, and thank it for keeping you safe.
