Anxiety is a sneaky little twit sometimes! I often describe Anxiety to clients as a socially awkward and annoying friend. One of those ones who has been around forever, maybe a neighbor or your cousin. You know the one that you are just stuck with because of circumstance. So what do you know about these socially awkward and annoying friends? They do their best to get you to notice them and pay attention to them, and not only that, they don’t want you to pay attention to anyone else! Yep, that’s how Anxiety works. It wants your full attention, so it tells you lies and convinces you to stay home and alone and to only play with it!
Ready to teach your Anxiety a thing or two about how life really works? Well then it is time to stop listening to the lies and start doing what is necessary to Connect and Build Community so that you are even better equipped to deal with what Anxiety attempts to throw at you! Take back your Power from Anxiety and maybe, just maybe, you will even teach it some better social skills!
