Stop Avoiding Your Anxiety

  • Stop Avoiding Your Anxiety

“Anxiety goes up and down like a wave- if you learn to surf it, it will never crush you. Most importantly, this practice will help you build confidence that you can handle it.” Washington Post.

The discomfort that comes with anxiety is an understatement, which is why it’s understandable that the desire to escape or avoid it is a natural response. The problem with avoidance is that eventually your life becomes consumed with efforts to avoid anything and everything that brings on the fear and worry. As a result, your quality of life goes down and your world becomes smaller. I’ve worked with individuals whose worlds became so small, leaving the house became an internal battle. While fear and worry can be uncomfortable, there’s not usually any real danger, just a false alarm going off in the body. Avoiding this alarm reinforces the fear and the cycle repeats. Are you ready to stop the cycle of avoidance?

If you’re ready to stop avoiding your anxiety and face it head on, counseling can help. At A Little Counseling, we offer weekly counseling for your anxiety, it’s like going to practice for your mind! It takes motivation and dedication but no matter how old you are, you can retrain the way you think and cope. I’ve seen many children, adolescents and adults work through avoidance behaviors and improve their quality of life-it’s pretty great! Let’s go, grab your anxiety and ride the wave-you may crash a few times and it may be uncomfortable at first but isn’t that life?!
