Hey all, I’ve risen from the ashes of the worst anxiety over the last 5 years. I’m happy to say that it’s under control now, but it does come back up and I defeat it with action; being scared and doing it anyway.
My biggest thing is driving next to concrete walls and on lower levels in big cities. I know it sounds weird but I will do anything I can to avoid doing this. I will take side roads, etc.
well the last few weeks I’ve decided to not take the easy way because, though my life would be simpler and stress free, I still wouldn’t be winning and I would still be letting fear write my story. SO today I was having a hard time and I decided to take a picture of this moment of fear so I could look at it from another angle and it took the fear away completely. I’m realizing this is so effective because when I take a picture, im looking at my fear for what it is. There’s no fear in it. In fact there’s a calming beauty to it. You can’t see my fearful thoughts in it at all.
Next time you’re scared, take a picture and it might help you look at things for what they really are
I hope this helps
