I remember my father telling me that he thought my mum had claustrophobia. I know she was dealing with anxiety, because I also deal with it. Around anxiety, my intuition helps channel my thoughts, so that I can live my life with a little more ease.
Although beliefs can play an important part in our lives, certain belief systems may not always help us deal with anxiety. Since the assault two years ago, my life has become very stressful. Anxiety has come in on the back of it.
So what is anxiety? Anxiety is a feeling of fear when we’re faced with difficult situations, sometimes threatening. For me it happens around an issue I can’t seem to bring closure on.
Anxiety is like an Adrenalin rush. It motivates us so that we are able to sort our problems out. Unfortunately, for me it works the other way. Wit the assault, as hard as I tried I couldn’t see a way forward. It usually depends on what’s being thrown at me.
I usually have to find something to do, so that I can clear my head and collect my thoughts. That seems to work.
