Do you have a crippling fear? One caused by anxiety or depression? Does this fear hold you back from doing the things you like to do?
I think anxiety and depression cause fear, irrational or not, for many. I know that for me anxiety and depression have given me multiple fears. I am scared that people will not like me. I am scared that if I go out on a Sunday night I won’t get enough rest for the upcoming week. I am scared of what people will think of me if I don’t do what pleases them.
Five things to help YOU get out of the Cage:
1. Don’t compare yourself to others.
2. Use your bed for sleep and sex ONLY!
3. Tell people how you feel when you are asked.
4. Watch less TV.
5. Focus on what you CAN control; not on what you can’t.
These five things are NOT easy. I have not accomplished all five successfully. But, guess what? That’s okay. I am trying to accomplish one thing at a time. Once thing is mastered, you can move onto the next!
Happy Friday Eve! 😁
