Supplying The Angst

Untitled

“In other words, anxiety is the fear that is looking for a reason.”
Giovanni Frazzetto

Having dealt with anxiety for a majority of my life, this description brought on a light bulb moment for me.

Anxiety – it’s a persistent and irrational fear which takes hold of you. Grasping you tight, winding you up forcefully till you can’t breathe anymore. Or least you think you can’t. What continues to escalate it is additional irrational thoughts added to the already panicky state. This quote identifies this process as our bodies needing to justify why it’s spiraling.

Perhaps it may give me ammunition when the next attack wants to tie me up in knots or, at the very least, slow down the reaction to my meltdown because I now have a rational thought to hang on to.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
