7 QUESTIONSANSWER. THESE. FIRST.
If you struggle with anxiety in your life, there are some very basic, minimum and necessary clarifications you need about your struggles.
Do you even know what about your anxiety makes it anxiety? And why you feel fear when even you know you shouldn't? What about your thinking? Yeah, you know it's warped but why are your negative thoughts still so sticky and entangling? How come medication doesn't really help?
START WITH THE BASICS.
Your recovery starts with this foundation. Get familiar with it. Understand it. See if it makes sense with your anxiety experience so far.
What happens after you get clear on the anxiety basics is that you'll never again question why you have anxiety in any given moment, and you'll never be confused about what you have to do right away.
