I Am An Anxiety Warrior
Anxiety? Yeah, I know her. She doesn’t like the unknown. She’s consistently afraid of what the future may hold. As a matter of fact, she’s just afraid in general. Afraid and distinctly nervous.
This can be me on any given day, in any given situation. Anxiety is that monster that keeps on haunting. I’ve learned, thanks to Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy, or ERP, given to me by NOCD to have two chairs available; one for me and one for anxiety. Because I’m going to sit with her and ride this out. In time, she’ll go on her way.
