Understanding Anxiety

January 9, 2007

Anxiety speaks danger’s tongue and warns of approaching hurt.

Most anxiety comes from deceiving yourself, for you fear most what you will not examine.

Hide from the truth and your life becomes full of worry.

When you are in darkness, it is easy to imagine the worst, for in darkness there is only the unknown.

You cannot get rid of anxiety you play down. Soon it takes you over, for fear spreads when you conceal it. When you won’t face what you fear, you have to cover everything to be safe.

An anxious mind doesn’t solve problems, it only creates more, for anxiety has a way of filling up all the spaces where you dream and reason. When you are anxious, you always fall behind.

You can always summon up your fears. An anxious person always finds something to worry about.


Admit the truth and your anxiety will subside.

If you know where your anxiety began, you know how to end it. You can make a plan to protect and save yourself.

You have to remember your strength to find it.

Make your wants greater than your fears.

You empower your fear by doubting yourself.

Name the fear, then conquer!

Feel your fear and do what you have to do.

My fear helps focus my strength. I defeat fear by believing in myself.

    The strength is always within you
    Know where and how to excavate it
    A helping hand is always around
    Reach out and you shall touch it
    Hold on and you shall be held on to
    Pull and you shall be pulled out

    One thing I know for sure is that your loving hands will always be there for me, Matt.
    I know you’ll never let go until I’m ready to be released.
    Thanks, my friend.

    Anxiety is what keeps us going, and also what holds us back. But knowing how to accept it allows to control our actions and its consequences. Thanks for the enlightenment Jemima. 🙂

    That’s right, Vern & you’re welcome. 🙂

    While it was difficult, it’s amazing how good I feel about myself now 🙂
