Welcom both to the forum!    Reply with quote  

Get control over unnecessary fear and anxiety
Do you ever feel that your thoughts and emotions control you, rather than the other way round?

Sometimes, you can feel as if something bad is about to happen for no apparent reason. As if you are about to have to do something, but you don't know what.

This sort of general anxiety or fear is usually generated by an unconscious response to the 'misuse' of the imagination. Basically, the 'back part' of the mind is getting the message from the imagination that something bad is going to happen, and so creates a state of readiness in the mind and body: anxiety.

This can partly be due to experiences in the past, or a lack of an ability to tolerate uncertainty - not knowing what is going to happen, but whatever the reason, the mind can learn to relax and take things as they come.

By enabling you to enter a calm and relaxed frame of mind, the unconscious mind can learn to 're-set' its responses to things back to normal, allowing you to enjoy every day with less anxiety, and more comfort.

Definately not alone    Reply with quote  

Hi Guys,

My anxiety started when i was 18. I am now 24, and it is probably worse than it has ever been but i have now come to realise one fact. We have to stop fighting our conditions. Embrace them and concentrate on correcting them. Put all your energy into this, sure it isn't easy and sometimes you may feel like giving up but keep battling and when it is gone, and it will go, you will be stronger for your convictions.

Have a look at my site and let me know if you have any questions: www.becomeyourself.org.
