Why is Anxiety in Your Life?

 

Anxiety is a normal emotion and a natural response; for some of us it has just gone a little haywire. The only thing keeping your anxiety alive is unknowingly getting caught in the anxiety cycle. As we go around and around the anxiety cycle, living anxiously becomes an innocent habit we're not consciously aware of. However, as we begin to understand the true nature of anxiety, this habit starts to change. We become better and better at seeing anxiety for what it really is - a fleeting and temporary emotion that's very good at appearing real, important, and scary. As we come to see anxiety for the illusion that it is, it loses all of its power and begins to naturally fall away.
