As a child my issues weren’t being addressed and I had anxiety. I needed help with those. For some, our issues may be the things we don’t want to have to deal with.
Feeling uneasy about an issue or situation can lead to anxiety, and our first reaction may be to avoid it. We need to face and conquer situations, or any anxiety we have as a result, may begin to control us. We need to understand why we have anxiety, so we may focus on the right responses, instead of ignoring them.
I was continually reinforcing my negative actions, but as an adult, I have learned to take a different view. When we face our fear, there is always a possibility that things will work out.
Situations can be resolved, and goals can be achieved and through experience, things should get easier. Nothing ever stays the same. Overcoming any form of fear or avoidance takes practice.
It’s never an overnight fix, but one thing is assured: the more you practise working through situations, the easier those situations become.
