Overwhelmed by Anxiety

My anxiety is off the charts. I should be enjoying the holiday weekend with my family but am suffering with overwhelming anxiety and am obsessively worrying about something that happened at work Friday. I think I made a mistake, that I should be able to resolve Tuesday. However I can’t stop thinking about it. I want to resolve it right now. I’m 3 hours away visiting family and even if I was home it would look very strange if I went into work on the holidays to figure it out.

I’m ruining the holidays for my wife and kids because my feelings are written all over my face.

I’m at a lose and welcome any feedback. I’ve tried meditative breathing and have tried rationalizing the situation but nothing seems to help.

You physically cannot do anything. Worrying about doesnt change it or affect the outcome so let it go. I do understand your struggle. Take comfort in what is in the current moment right here right now. Easier said i know but you must try what would you say to a friend with the same problem.
