Facing my fears or running away


I seem to struggle day to day with whether I’m going to face my anxiety or whether I’m going to try to ignore it. I go back-and-forth. I don’t think it’s working for me. I know I have to face it and come to realization and call it what it actually is

Overthinking and generally making the worst out of the situation. I know I have to get out of my own head. So I’m going to go try and get something positive Done. I want to get up and go tackle some chores and check back later and let you know how it went. Hope you’re finding peace out there. hugs

How did it go?? xx

Hi 😃 it went great so far today I went grocery shopping and got a few things for my grandson for Easter. Thanks for checking in with me. I’m so happy I found a site where people understand and are caring enough to ask. I also hope you found peace today. 🤗

Good for you in getting out today. We certainly do understand. Each and every one

of us goes through difficult days but when we have a great day, we embrace and

celebrate and share with others. You did good my friend :) xx


Thanks for your kind words. You’re making a difference in the world. ☮️


So glad it went ok. Sometimes, simple things like brushing teeth are huge triumphs. Strength ❤️

I try & follow Face Everything And Recover as opposed to Fear Everything And Run - its not easy but I feel a lot better about myself when I turn it around to the 1st version of fear.

Yes it’s fight or flight
