Anxiety Paralysis

Written on Monday January 14, 2019 at 5:51 a.m.

I have a bad habit of allowing my anxiety to get in the way of the things I want to do. Today was one such occurrence. I spent hours just worrying about things that could be. There's no logic to it, and in most cases there isn't even really a catalyst (today's incident did in fact have a driver, but not one I feel safe discussing online).

I really want to find a way to focus this anxiety and do something besides idly wait in fear. I don't want to look back three years from now and find that I haven't moved forward in some aspect. Even if I just manage to use the time to create something or write, I would feel so much better than if I just continue to burn time doing nothing out of fear.
