I remember a time during my anxiety disorder days where everything revolved around my anxiety, and an unhelpful anxiety habit was built. Like a shadow that never left even when the sun went down, anxiety was my best friend and my worst enemy.
Best friend because I had an unconscious need to keep it alive and around, enemy because it was keeping me from experiencing life the way I truly wanted to.
- distracting from a feeling or thought or person
- negative social circle of friends
- constant fear of what may arise next
