Suffering From Anxiety?

Anxiety can be felt through fear and worry that sometimes does not go away and can get progressively worse. It can impact your life tremendously and interfere with daily activities such as school, work, friendships, relationships, and dating. It is important to recognize that stress, worry, and trepidation are normal experiences within the modern world, however, can easily turn into suffering and ongoing distress.

If you are experiencing ongoing excessive worry, nervousness, or uneasiness and it negatively impacts your ability to fully thrive, it may be beneficial to seek out counseling. Dealing with worry, unpleasant thoughts, and persistent tension can be exhausting, overwhelming, and draining.

It is common to feel alone, misunderstood, and unacknowledged by others who do not experience high anxiety. People may not understand your experience and don’t relate to anxiety-provoking situations. For example, being in a crowd of people, going on a first date, driving on a street where you got in a car accident, or even thinking about the future.

You may hear comments from friends, partners or even family that minimize your experience such as, “It’s all good,” “There is no reason to worry,” “Let it go,” or “Worrying won’t solve anything.”

You may be thinking when you hear the above remarks, “I don’t know how to do that,” and it leaves you feeling crazy, isolated, and stuck. The struggle becomes harder and increases overall discomfort. You may have tried ways to alleviate the discomfort and it only creates more problems in the long-run. You then get caught in vicious cycle that leads to greater dysfunction.
