A few posts ago, I talked about manipulation and how there are people who make us feel bad because we suffer with anxiety. While I understand that it is hard when others treat us with disrespect, we have to remember that as long as we are really trying to get better and know we are trying, it does not matter what others say. In addition, while I understand wanting to get better for others, there are also reasons we need to try to get better for ourselves. When we are successful, it feels amazing; we can see and feel the difference between feeling anxious and and being confident. Also, when we work hard and practice, we improve our health and instead of anxiety, we are filled with confidence. Not only is overcoming anxiety helpful in our relationships with others, but more importantly by practicing and overcoming our fears and anxieties, we are helping OURSELVES. I know it can be hectic worrying about what others think of you, but as long as you work hard, it reallly doesn’t matter. We need to strive to get better and we have to promise ourselves never to give up.
