Came across this on Facebook a couple of days ago. I don’t know who wrote it and wonder if they realise that this is literally what it takes to recover from anxiety. Instead of hating and fearing the symptoms and pushing them away in order to not feel them, learn to accept and embrace it and treat it as a friend. Im not saying you have to fall in love with it or to grin through gritted teeth and bare it, look upon it as a needy friend who is just trying to protect you and move on with your day. Your friend will eventually get the message that they don’t need to protect you all the time and stop following you around.
