You’re feeling overwhelmed and stuck. When you worry, you tend to imagine the worst thing that could possibly happen. In reality, these worries may never come true. What could happen isn’t the same as what will happen. Maybe you’re feeling angry more often, or simply so anxious that you can’t focus as your thoughts and feelings spiral out of control. Anxious thoughts and feelings aren’t helping; they only seem to grow and dominate your daily life.
Getting through each day feels harder and you’ve lost motivation and the pastimes that used to relax you no longer interest you. Alcohol or drugs may be involved to try to soothe yourself and taking care of yourself is getting more difficult as restful sleep feels impossible. Your relationships and work or education is being affected and sometimes you feel desperate.
It’s not uncommon for people to shape their life decisions around their fears, while making major sacrifices in the process. Protecting ourselves from anxiety works against us, as we build a safe prison that feels safe but isolates us even as the anxious thoughts and feeling grow stronger.
