Anxiety Is A Paradox
This paradox means anxiety will get you to avoid choices that feel uncomfortable, but that would actually serve you well. It’s the nature of the worry-beast, and you better believe that beast knows you intimately. You think your choices are working to keep you safe and calm. That’s exactly why you keep making them. But in reality, those same well-worn negative patterns just keep you stuck.
Anxiety is that worry loop that keeps your negative thoughts running at full throttle. When worry works to get you to problem solve, that’s a good thing. But when it becomes the overwhelming noise in your head, it has nothing to offer you except a load of fear-based “What ifs…” Wouldn’t you like to tame that inner bully?
Anxiety comes in an alphabet soup of unwelcome flavors: Generalized anxiety, social anxiety, panic, OCD, trauma (PTSD) and phobias which are persistent, irrational thoughts that crowd out your REAL ability to reason. If you’re here, maybe it’s time to act. Schedule a consult now—let’s see if we’re a good fit.
