If you have anxiety, acknowledge and accept!

Posted , 5 users are following.

ACKNOWLEDGE

I'm acknowledging simply that I am afraid, not that I am in danger. The thought that I am in danger is just another symptom of anxiety/panic, not an important or useful thought.

   ACCEPT

I accept, as best I can, that I'm afraid in the same way I would accept a headache. I don't like headaches, but I don't bang my head against the wall in an effort to get rid of them, because that makes them worse. Overcoming anxiey/panic attacks begins with working with, not against, my panic and anxiety symptoms.

Is it Danger or Discomfort?
