  1. I have experienced anxiety in the past where I needed to be medicated. I no longer need the meds to help. But do experience anxiety from time to time. Usually when someone else is causing it when creating unwanted drama. I have learned to think more positive thoughts. I am teaching my daughter this as well. It is helping little by little.

    • Anxiety is a real problem and can be very hard to deal with. For some people it is much harder than others. I used to not have any trouble with anxiety. I am strong in my faith and always tried to choose joy! I still do try but after being the victim of an assault last year, I struggle with PTSD, anxiety disorder, and panic attacks. It’s a very weird and difficult to control when there are times that I feel overcome with anxiety but for no reason whatsoever.

    I’ve been diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder a long time ago. I’m currently on medication for GAD, sometimes I believe anxiety rules my life. I found meditation and yoga a great way to cope, did I mention crying? I cry a lot but also I try to stay active for the sake of my children. I really needed to read this today, Thank you.

    There’s nothing wrong to plan about the future but overthinking can definitely bring you to lengths that can give you more things to worry about. I stand with you on this one, it won’t do you any good. It’s better to stay in the moment and react as you go along.

    Sometimes, we are so worried in things that have not happened. You are right, we should abandon anxiety.

    This is so important for me. I recently suffered the loss of a child, and sometimes anxiety tries to overwhelm me. I have to hold onto faith, in the present moment, to make it through those moments.

    Inspiring post. My sister suffers form anxiety and it is such a real threat. I will share this with her for encouragement.

  7. Anxiety can creep up very fast. I like how you said that to avoid anxiety, stay in the present. So much time is spent worrying about the past and future. We can only really control what is happening right now.

  8. I know quite a few people who suffer with anxiety and it is very real. Half of the problem with dealing with it is that the anxiety itself can prevent you from wanting to in the first place so it is a vicious circle. It can get better, though!

    My hubby gets really bad anxiety. He just has to take a step back and breath and usually that alms him down.

    I don’t really get anxiety, but I know some that do. My friend was here the other night and she had anxiety and didn’t want to go home. She stayed here til she felt like she was okay to go home. I know anxiety can often get pretty bad too.

    I’ve only felt panic once… it was so brief (less than a minute) but oh boy, I remember it. It surprised me then and still surprises me now, if I think about it.

    I struggle with anxiety and it can be exhausting. I think everyone needs to abandon their anxiety and embrace enjoyment instead but it can be so hard.

  13. I agree, despite trying to stay positive we all tend to fall in to some sort of anxiety in all of a sudden. Meditation is the best way to get some relaxation needed & making sure you come out of it someway or other. Thank you for inspiring.

  14. Definitely easier said than done in the beginning. Stress and anxiety can be difficult to overcome or set aside. However, the more you practice being conscious about focusing on the good, the easier it becomes to shift your mindset. Stressors are a part of life, so it’s good to find a way to effectively cope with them.

    Anxiety is a very bad enemy, it will attack you anywhere, anytime. However, we should control it and lie the most f our beautiful life.

  16. When my pain level is really high, I have anxiety attacks. I’m always afraid I won’t be able to get the pain level down to a manageable number. I’m trying hard to control both.
