“Quotes About Anxiety Can Open Your Eyes To A Whole New Perspective, If You Think About The Relativity To You.”

5 Powerful Quotes About Anxiety
“The Anxious Feelings Are A Sign From Your System Telling You Not To Do That Anymore.”
It’s not that your mind, emotions, and body hate you, it’s that it’s trying to give you a ‘heads up.’ This heads up is due to past experiences and lessons that your subconscious mind doesn’t want you to go through again. Sometimes anxious feelings show up in the am when nothing’s going on, or during a conversation with someone, or even during exercising. It all means that the meaning over what occurred from the past, that was distressing, hasn’t changed yet. Time to shift the meaning of that event (watch this video which explains how we store these emotional traumas in our bodies).
“Anxiety Is Connected To Two Sides Of A Person In Conflict. One Wanting Freedom, The Other Wanting Safety, Meaning Worry.”
Safety = worry because worry = familiarity. Whatever has been the most repeated will be the thing your subconscious mind will want you to default to, behaviourally and emotionally. To give up these habits of anxiousness and worry means to learn brand new lessons, something that doesn’t fit well with the needs around efficiency of your brain. Resistance will be there, expect it.
“Never Allow Your Identity To Be Attached To The Approval Of Others.”
We’ve relied so much on others to approve of our choices, that we never truly become who we’re meant to become. Limitless, proud, confident, creating the inner world we want to live in so that our outer world reflects it. No ones opinion matters anymore, remember that. You make your own decisions from now on based on the facts available to you. And if others don’t accept the new you and the transition you’re on, they don’t deserve to be in your life.
“Find A New Perspective Over The Thing You’re Torturing Yourself Over That Happened Years Ago. You’re Not Weak For Doing So, You’re Growing Up.”
Thinking is the most under-trained and under practiced skill in human beings today. We’ve become instinctual and emotional creatures quickly jumping to conclusions (certainly in the case of health anxiety, in which case these affirmations will help) far before we remind ourselves of the facts. What happened in your past happened, and it happened because it made you a more educated and stronger person. I have a question for you… why are you grateful for those tough times? Mind switch.
“Suffering Arises When We Try And Control Everything, And Keep Everything As They Currently Are.”
Our health, our reputation, peoples words and even their body language towards us, you name it. We’ve become control freaks frightened over losing that control. To make control a necessary part of your life means to live with an addiction to suffering (if this sounds like you, this proven CBT program can help). Wouldn’t you rather give up some (or a lot in many cases) control, and instead become accustomed to an exciting and adventurous life that isn’t perfectly controlled and planned out?
Don’t you remember that time you first laid eyes on your wife or husband, girlfriend or boyfriend? You were completely uncertain of the outcome, but yet there was a sense of mysteriousness in the air. That worked out didn’t it? And if it didn’t, you learned a valuable lesson didn’t you? The point is that you HAVE TO begin giving up control over each aspect of your life if you truly want to life a life free from the addiction to suffering, and inner chaos.
