Oh, Anxiety! Why Don’t You Just Leave Me Alone?!

I hate that feeling of anxiety. The kind of anxiety that is there when you go to bed and still there when you wake up. It’s that kind of anxiety that comes from uncertainty…the unknown.

I would love to create something that would just make it all go away….I guess I’d have to know the future then. And if that was the case then the enjoyment of creating my future would disappear, because I’d already know what was going to happen. Plus, I might not like what was going to happen. Or I might be too focused on the future excitement, that I would forget to live in the present moment and just enjoy being alive.

So maybe being anxious is what I’m stuck with.




So I’m not going to let the chronic anxiety take over. I’m going to be sensible and  just let life be.


Let life be. But that’s what’s making me anxious.  So I’m going to do something!


I’m not just going to sit by and let my life happen.


 I’m going to do something about it!

Deep Breath.

I’m taking the time to pray and ask for some guidance…

My inspiration came from my husband this morning. I said, “I don’t know if I’ve got it in me to write my blog right now. I’m just not feeling that inspired. I’m worried about…” He replied, “Well, this is when you need to be writing the most. This is when you need to challenge yourself.” Okay…I’m challenging myself. And the funny thing is he was right. Writing about the hard stuff…unwanted feelings of anxiety…actually helps make the anxiety have less power. Writing forces the anxiety out. It doesn’t just sit right on top of my gut.  I think I will be better off today. Maybe I’ll be even more proactive because I’m not letting the feeling of anxiety control me. Instead I’m in control of my destiny. And I have the choice to determine how I’m going to feel about it.

So chronic anxiety, I’m dissing you today. I’m kindly asking you to leave, and if you don’t my other feelings of hope and inspiration are going to have another thing coming to you!

Be well all of you, and keep your head up.

It’s a new day!

  1. I think you hit the nail on the head when you wrote about letting the anxiety out. If we try to push down or understand an uncomfortable feeling we have, it just gets stronger because of our attention to it. But if we allow it to emerge and just accept it’s there as an energy without identifying with it, or giving it any power/control it will simply go away. And yes, we all have a choice as to how we respond to anything! Thanks for your post 🙂

    1. Thank you too, Emily. I like they way you talk about letting the anxiety emerge, without having to identify it. Half the time that makes me more anxious when I’m trying to make sense of it…letting the anxiety be in control as you say. Blessings on your journey today and each day!

  2. Anxiety is common to all of us. Some suffer more than others. Here’s what helps me. Awareness! I am aware that my anxiety is caused by being attached to the outcome. The other day I was in a foul mood because I ‘expected’ to have a nice easy day. Then technology stuck it’s foot in the door – nothing worked properly. The computer, my iPhone, even my in-car stereo. Most of the day past before I came back to awareness that I was creating my own suffering by being attached to having a nice easy day. I should have been flexible and just accepted what was happening. (Easier said than done, I know) Anyway, once I had regained my awareness I rapidly became calm. I realised that I didn’t necessarily have control over technology, but I did have control of how I reacted to it. Hope that helps. 🙂

    1. Stu- Life’s funny like this isn’t it…like you say, You wanted to have an easy day, but instead all the things that were supposed to make your life easy were not…I’ve had many a day like that! But yes, we do need to become aware, and get into control of how we react. When we do this we save ourselves from a lot of unnecessary suffering! I hope the technology world is treating you better today! Thanks!

  3. I hate feeling anxious because it usually means there is really something not right. Unfortunately for me, it’s because I’m frickin intuitive to the point of dreading waking up sometimes in case I’ve got ‘the feeling’ again. Yesterday I had a really important job interview, but I wasn’t anxious. I should have been but I wasn’t. I was just all relaxed and going ‘Oh you know if it’s right for me, I’ll get the job…’ and all that philosophical talk. Then I’ll get really anxious because of something really silly like feeding the rabbit. I’m not joking. Sometimes the easiest thing makes me crazy. The harder stuff I don’t sweat. I’m weird. I’m not even anxious about the fact that I’m weird. How weird. 🙂

    1. The intuitive anxiety…ugh..don’t like it, but sometimes it can be really good. It doesn’t always have to turn out bad! I’ve had interviews like you too, and been surprised at how natural I feel..usually means there’s something natural about me being there…maybe it’s part of where life wants me to be. I hope you receive an answer that makes your heart happy. And Weird is good…it makes you, You. And that is Fabulous! All the best, and many blessings! Erin

  4. You could always ask yourself, “Who does this anxiousness belong to?” Most of the time it isn’t even yours, but someone else’s. Do a search on Access Consciousness, and Emotion Codes.

I love learning from your sharing & wisdom.
