In episode #25 of The Anxiety Guy Podcast I get deep. To be honest, I get lots of great email responses from people through this website, and on the Facebook page. But I also get lots of criticism. Why you ask? I think it’s because people believe that there is only one set solution for anxiety. What is that path that we’re told we must take if we suffer from anxiety, or other mental health challenges?
Medication And Therapy!
Look, as you’ll see in this podcast episode I admit the mental health professionals are good at helping people with anxiety disorders. But there’s also a place for a good success story that can create even deeper (and quicker) changes in people.
Why you may ask? because inspiration, connection, and passion is what drives change!
If you’re mental health professional is looking at you like some kind of 100 dollar bill, just waiting to book your next appointment, run! You are not there to spend years of your time and hard earned money just talking about your anxiety.
You are in this position because you’ve made some links in your brain that remind you daily that the world is a dangerous place. Guess what, those links can be broken faster than you know. your identity is not anxiety, you are a person, you deserve more…
You know what I found to be great tool against anxiety? Anger. I remember the days I would yell and scream at my health anxiety character I made up in my head (he looked quite goofy). I remember holding up a white flag and surrendering to the giant that I had fed, helped grow, and eventually overtook every aspect of my life.
I go much deeper on this in the episode so hang tight. In this episode of The Anxiety Guy Podcast you’ll learn about:
- Why a mentor is so important to your recovery and beyond
- How an open minded approach can help cure anxiety
- Why I will always continue to help people no matter what
