Struggling with Anxiety and Ways to Alleviate it
Jul 19, 2018
Anxiety is something most people struggle with. It is something that, if not controlled can really mess with your day to day life. I believe it is something more normal than we realize and for some, going to seek medical attention is the solution. I want to share with you some ways I find helpful for myself.
First and foremost I believe your anxiety is nothing more than your fears. Whatever may trigger an attack, you have to learn to overcome by looking at it as a fear. You know that fears are just things unknown. So, let's try and understand what causes these attacks. Write them down. Ask yourself what you can do to take the next step in overcoming that fear. For me; Driving on the highway causes me major anxiety. I worry about death, trucks, if I'm going to slow or to fast. Things that I have no clue about until I'm there facing it.
Treat your anxiety like a human, talk to him or her. Let them know that they will not have control over you. You can be and do anything you set your mind to and anxiety, no matter how scary you are you can't control me. You become in charge and face that fear of talking to a loved one. Let that "person" know that they hurt you. Take that jump into the ocean or, like me, take that drive on the highway. Whatever it may be you have to be the one in control.
I know that anxiety causes you to fear and think the worst. It can make you feel alone even when your not and if you're not careful cause depression. One more way I find helpful, is to simply write. On paper you can imagine and change the course of so many things in your mind. You can gain the strength to actually face your real world problems. Write to yourself or your anxiety and change the way you view things. But Keep in kind my anxiety is nothing more than my fears. The only way to overcome my fears, is to face them head on.
