How to Deal with Chronic Fear and Anxiety

chronic%20anxiety%20manIn this section we address things you can do on your own to work with fear and anxiety. We do not cover the many valuable techniques and therapies available when working with professional psychologists or other providers. These are essential for those who have experienced trauma or are suffering from intense chronic fear or anxiety.

Avoid avoidance

The only way to deal with fear is to face it. Avoiding it prevents us from moving forward—it makes us anxious. Therapists can be invaluable in helping us work through our avoiding strategies. If you have experienced trauma, it is especially important to work with a therapist to create a safe environment where you can face your fear and reconstruct your memories.Learn more about mindfulness

Another technique in milder situations is to use mindfulness meditation techniques to sit with what is arising. All you need to do is sit quietly and observe the present moment. If fear or anxiety arises, recognize it. Watch it rise up. Notice how it feels in your body. Observe it as it is; don’t try to get rid of it or change it.

This Is A Bit Of A Departure From The Holiday Poems I’ve Been Posting Lately… Forgive The Darker Tone…

Black One

I Have Become All Too Familiar With Thee

Much More Than I Ever Would Have Intended…

Or Hoped

As I Find Myself Trying To Break From Your Embrace…

I Am Met With Legions Of Fears…

And Thoughts In My Way

It’s Not Your Fault Really…

Sent Here To Defend Me From This Sometimes Difficult Realm

And Yet Your Presence Is No Longer Needed Here…

Why Do You Stay

I Remember The Friends I’ve Lost Along The Way…

They Could Not Face Their Heroes Fall

I Remember Cool Evening Nights…

And Long Winter Days

And How I Danced With Winding Roads…

My Black Wings, Gone Astray

I’m Not Big On Complaining… No

But Maybe You Could…

Make Your Way

You Are Not Needed…

Wanted

Desired In Any Way…

As I Lay Here Pondering The Day Sky

Blocked By The Clouds You Display

I Think… There May Be Hope Yet

In This Long… Long

Too Long Life And Day
