Hi Anxiety


Hi anxiety,

You make us worry, you cause us angst; why? Why do you make us feel lost and out of control? Why do you affect our daily lives? What’s the real problem? We’d really like to know.


anxiety n. pl. anx·i·e·ties
1. A state of uneasiness and apprehension, as about future uncertainties. A cause of anxiety: For some people, air travel is a real anxiety.
2. Psychiatry A state of apprehension, uncertainty, and fear resulting from the anticipation of a realistic or fantasized threatening event or situation, often impairing physical and psychological functioning.
3. Eager, often agitated desire: my anxiety to make a good impression.
anxiety synonyms noun A troubled or anxious state of mind: angst, anxiousness, care, concern, disquiet, disquietude, distress, nervousness, solicitude, unease, uneasiness, worry. See feelings.

Why do we allow the fear to take over? Why are we so fearful of change? Why does it seem that we’d rather feel fear and anxiety than joy and happiness? Are we so afraid of the unknown that we essentially create our own feelings and panic because it is a known? Can it be a comfort issue? A control issue? If it’s a matter of comfort, then why are we so comfortable with discomfort? If it’s a matter of control then why do we feel the necessity of being in control?

What if we loose control? What does it matter? What difference does it make? How can we learn to deal with uncertainty and doubt? Why can’t we just learn to flow with what life deals us? How can we channel these needs for the good and our well being?

Why should we be strong and persevere? I believe we need the strife and we need the anticipation, we need the struggle. Without the endeavor we accomplish nothing. That’s human nature. We do need to also allow ourselves to relish in the moments, allowing ourselves to enjoy. Can we accept of our own fallacies?

We are human and are born blind, meaning that we didn’t have preconceived notions or opinions, we were blind. We’re really limited by our own experiences, even if we listen to others and take their advice. It’s a continuous journey of learning and adopting.
