“Anxiety is not your fault, but it is your responsibility to overcome.”
How many times do anxiety sufferers beat themselves up over having anxiety? All the time. The label of Generalized Anxiety Sufferer, Health Anxiety Sufferer, or Panic Disorder is the invisible suit we wear and carry around day in and day out.
We blame ourselves non stop, but is it really our fault?
Those labels are a good starting point to have, to have a reference that will point us in the direction of a proven CBT/NLP solution. The problem is it consumes us, and we share it with others as well as the universe itself. We unconsciously check in with our anxious identities day in and day out in all of our affairs, such as:
- Is this environment safe for me?
- Should I say that?
- Should I act like that?
And of course the answer is always a big fat NO! Because safety is what’s familiar, and the closer you stay to your anxious identity the safer you will be (says your subconscious mind). Anything that goes against it in terms of thoughts, words, feelings, images, or actions will be deemed wrong, and how wrong is that.
A life consumed by anxiety is no life at all
Which is why today is your lucky day. I want to set the record clear so we can get that heavy weight that resides on your shoulders off of you. The consuming nature that anxiety comes with will no longer be as heavy. Heck, you might just get rid of it all together after truly understanding this episode of The Anxiety Guy Podcast.
