Anxious thoughts can become less scary over time if you know how to ease them. Anxiety and thoughts are linked and bounce off one another.
Have you ever been able to relax after someone suggests you should? It simply cannot be done.
It’s the same with anxiety. Trying to force yourself to calm down is not going to get you very far.
In fact, it’s probably more likely it will get you nowhere.
The idea of being able to come to terms with your anxious feelings is a difficult one to grasp.
Why should you embrace something you fear so much? What would be the benefits of that?
In doing so, you’ll slowly begin to train yourself that the anxious thoughts are not as scary as you mind will lead you to believe.
