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.
—Lee Goff
