Be Still, Anxious Thoughts
Breathing hard and fast, on the edge of panic, I sit in my chair wondering which of my thoughts are the ones that I should listen to. There are so many competing for my attention and I don’t know how to stop hearing them. Confused, anxious, I tell myself to calm down but instead I begin to shake and tremble. I try closing my eyes, be still, relax my face, neck, shoulders. Instead, the panic overtakes my body as I silently cry out for help.
