Today was slightly upsetting for me, but I did learn something essential. Anxiety, as I’ve known for a long time now, has the tendency to take away from one’s life at times. Also, while many of us know the importance of practicing and exercising in order to get through anxiety, we tend to come up with excuses or reasons not to practice. Whether or not these reasons are valid is not always important. What is important is the fact that if you want to return to a life that is not controlled by anxiety, practicing and exercising, along with taking steps to overcome and get through your anxiety, should be your top priority. As someone said to me today, “Everything else is secondary”. So try your hardest to practice and exercise consistently and you will see progress.
