Over-dependence on another can become a bad habit when entrenched in anxiety-panic. Today Gina takes a look at 3  that Matana Williams took to move out of this anxious behavior.

Today's Quote:
Suffering is not holding you. You are holding suffering. When you become good at the art of letting sufferings go, then you’ll come to realize how unnecessary it was for you to drag those burdens around with you. You’ll see that no one else other than you was responsible. The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival.

365: Emotions Anxiety and Our Common Humanity

Coming to terms with the idea that we all as humans have feelings of discomfort, disappointment, and inadequacy we can begin to let go of feeling like victims and have real self-compassion which helps to interrupt the fear -anxiety-fear cycle!

Quote: 
When we’re in touch with our common humanity, we remember that feelings of inadequacy and disappointment are universal. This is what distinguishes self-compassion from self-pity. While self-pity says “poor me,” self-compassion recognizes suffering is part of the shared human experience. The pain I feel in difficult times is the same pain that you feel in difficult times. The triggers are different, the circumstances are different, the degree of pain is different, but the basic experience is the same.

364: Your Relationship With Anxiety

How we look at and relate to anxiety had a profound impact on our stress levels. Today we consider bringing more compassion and acceptance to our daily dealings with Mr.Anxiety.

Quote: 
Sometimes the door closes on a relationship, not because we failed but because something bigger than us says this no longer fits our life. So, lock the door, shed a tear, turn around and look for the new door that’s opened. It’s a sign that you’re no longer that person you were, it’s time to change into who you are. It’s going to be okay.
