Your heart races. Your palms get sweaty. Your muscles tense. Just thinking about it is starting to feel overwhelming. You may think,“Do other people feel this?” or “How to I get rid of this feeling?” or “I just want to be able to do things without these feelings.”
Anxiety is a normal part of the human experience. We all feel it sometimes. It becomes a problem when that’s all our brain can think about. When our first thought goes to why we can’t do the thing we want to do.
Therapy is a great way to start looking at some of the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs underneath your anxiety and to start addressing them.
