“Nothing Is Either Good Or Bad, But Thinking Makes It So.” – Shakespeare
Living with anxiety means to perceive your past in a way that keeps you sensitized. How else can we explain the unconscious thoughts, feelings, and re-actions to external events today. These are stored experiences within your mind and body that continue to turn on your fight or flight response, in the hopes of you taking action for the sake of your survival.
Fear is normal, anxiety is not
To fear something is to be cautious over that thing. A person, a time of the day, an event, even yourself. Anxiety though is a whole other story. Anxiety is a looming shadow that doesn’t know when to take a hike. It follows you everywhere, has the first say in any given situation, and unfortunately for too many people today also has the last say as well. A CBT method of course can help too counter these habits.
But the question is, what do we have total control over that can help us against living with anxiety?
The answer to that is the types of perspectives you have over the events, the people, and the circumstances in your past. You have complete control over how you see an event, as long as you don’t allow your ego mind to say otherwise. The ego will always distort, generalize, and delete information based around its own silly interpretations. Your job is to bypass the ego, and hopefully one day move towards unconditional love for yourself and all things in the world.
