How does anxiety stop us from thriving?
Hello my dear!
Me again. So, how does anxiety stop us from thriving?
Anxiety is the BIGGEST thing that stops us from thriving for three main reasons.
It robs you of self confidence and self belief, because you’re always telling yourself why you can’t do something or why you’re not good enough.
It drains your energy. And it can lead to depression. If you’re constantly having negative self defeating thoughts - You’re spending all this precious mental space and energy on things that are not useful or productive. It’s robbing you of the energy you could be using to actually put toward creating beautifully in your life.
It can lead to unwanted self fulfilling prophecies. What you believe heavily influences what you create in your life. There is so much science behind this.
If you feel like this is you, it can feel disheartening and frustrating. But right now you’re having the awareness of what’s happening to you. And that is the first step to deeply changing it - so you’re on the right path my dear friend!
** And now - I’d love to invite you to your weekly moment of powerful self reflection: How might anxiety be preventing you from thriving? If you could release anxiety, how would you or your life be different?
Hit reply and let me know! I love hearing your stories. Remember - taking the time to answer this in writing helps to make your intentions a reality and I would love to hold those intentions for you as well!
P.S.
