Not only was I going to die someday, but I was very small in comparison to the rest of the world, which was rather large. I couldn't get over how small I felt. I was an ant and the universe was expansive and I was drowning in the hugeness of it all.
Make a conscious choice to not go on the wild goose chase anxiety can launch, but know that you're better off without it. Instead, downgrade the importance of worry's messages and switch lines. The one without worry moves a lot faster.
For anxiety sufferers, elements of everyday life can trigger a panic attack. Sometimes it can come on without warning, and other times you know that an upcoming situation or activity will absolutely hit your panic button.
I'm passionate about having a frank discussion about anxiety and opening up the dialogue. For those who suffer with it, please know that you're not alone. Think of it as your body's way of telling you that you've either over-done it or you're heading in the wrong direction.
