When anxiety comes up, instead of fearing it, find out what it can teach you. When you think of anxiety only in negative terms and try to shame and blame it, it will persist. But those who actually heal it give themselves permission to make that shift. They understand that anxiety is only there to teach us something. Ask what you need to learn in that moment. That is the first and biggest shift you can have with your anxiety.
Upon reflecting on your needs and priorities you get to decide if the way you’re doing things is serving the highest version of yourself. You get to inspect your needs and ask yourself what needs aren’t getting met and why and why it’s important. Once you have that, you have some clarity and direction to change.
