Anxiety is not an illness

Anxiety is NOT an illness

Have you ever felt a sense of worry or nervousness that seems to take over your thoughts and leave you feeling paralysed?


If so, you’re not alone. Anxiety is a common experience for many of us, but despite its prevalence, it is often misunderstood.

First and foremost, anxiety is not an illness. It is not something that needs to be be cured with a pill or a shot. Instead, anxiety is an emotional and physiological state that is a natural response to stress and uncertainty. It is a feeling that has evolved over time to help us navigate dangerous situations and protect ourselves from harm.

And, as such, it can be changed!

However, just because anxiety is not an illness doesn’t mean it’s not serious. In fact, anxiety can be incredibly debilitating and can interfere with our daily lives. It can cause us to feel isolated, hopeless, and lost. But despite all of this, it is still possible to change the way we experience anxiety.

One of the biggest misconceptions about anxiety is that it is a permanent condition. But in reality, anxiety is a dynamic state that can change from moment to moment. It can come and go, wax and wane, depending on our thoughts, emotions, and experiences.

So, if you’re struggling with anxiety, it’s important to remember that you’re not stuck with it forever.
You have the power to change the way you experience anxiety by learning new coping skills, seeking support, and working to shift your perspective. With time and patience, you can learn to manage your anxiety and live a more fulfilling life.

So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed by anxiety right now, don’t despair. Take a deep breath and remind yourself that anxiety is not an illness, but an emotional and physiological state that can change. With the right tools and support, you can find relief and move forward with confidence.

Is fear of failure holding you back in life_Part 3

Is fear of failure holding you back in life? – Part 3

To add to my earlier posts on this subject, it’s important to recognize that fear of failure is often closely tied to our sense of self-worth. When we fear failure, we may worry that it will reflect poorly on us as individuals or make us feel like we’re not good enough. This can create a negative feedback loop, as the more we fear failure, the more it reinforces our negative beliefs about ourselves.
