“What if—regardless of the intensity of your anxiety (or depression, addiction, compulsions)—you are a healthy person simply experiencing anxious, depressed, and/or addictive thinking? What if anxiety doesn’t come from the world around you? What if it doesn’t come from school or work, a change in schedule or lifestyle, or the people around you who seem to drive you nuts? What if anxiety is your own moment-to-moment thinking masquerading as reality? What if freedom from anxiety is a simple matter of seeing through the illusion of thought?” (Amy Johnson, Ph.D.)
Wishing you peace and wellbeing as you explore your where your anxiety comes from.
PS: Remember to hold the ones you love just a little closer and tighter this week (without expectations)
