433: Dropping Into Your Anxiety

In this episode, Gina shares with listeners a post from Leo Babauta: "How to Work With Whatever Come Up".  A core part of the message is that there is value (if not outright magic!) in dropping into the discomfort of anxiety-panic rather than running away from it.  Staying with the discomfort is a way to avoid feeding the fear that ultimately strengthens anxiety-panic.

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.
