Good idea. I can’t make the doctor tell me what I want to hear so adjusting my thinking to acceptance and peace in finding truth instead of fearing it.

Yes! We can do this together....get ready sails!!! Love ya!!!

Using that analogy, let the stormy winds blow you in any direction, let it buffet and rock your yacht and just accept it. No matter what happens to your yacht, it will not sink and that storm (anxiety) will eventually pass. The more you pass through those storms, the calmer the waters will be on the other side. There may be many storms to pass through but they will start to lose their ferociousness and become a ripple and no longer matter. By this time, you’ve reached port.

Love how you put that. Comforting.

This is a really good visual to use for changing your perspective. If the view does not serve you, change your view.
