If you haven't read my first article, please do as soon as possible. It will be of great help and with end where we begin in this one. After I finally got a hold of myself and figured out how to calm myself down I realized, as will you, how much time I had lost worrying about things I couldn't control. Whether it be the dishes, laundry, or putting something off that could be done today. I blamed people for my worry when they had no control over it. I never even saw this issue until I went to my first group meeting. I had absolutely NO CONTROL over my feelings which screwed up my entire life. I made horrible decisions, financially and in my home life. I was the problem and no one could fix that but me. As I said, I had wasted a lot of time. That time was over. I started small with doing things for myself to keep myself within serenity. How do you start, you ask. Here are three ways to do that.
I have been an in the closet about my anxiety for my entire life. When I turned 30, I finally came to the realization that I have to get a hold of this as I laid in my bed gasping for air and freaking my husband out. Anxiety had taken over my life. It had completely ruined it actually. I was on edge. I couldn't balance my checkbook. I blamed everyone else and then wondered why no one wanted to be around me. It made me feel as if I was stuck in life. Worrying about one thing or another. Frustrated with the fact that my life wasn't as I had intended it to be. This was a crazy cycle of my life with no end to it.
