The experience of fear can interfere with our quality of life in profound ways. It can rob us of our sleep. Anxiety isolates us from others who would befriend us. Fear can leave us without sex or romance.
When we are anxious, we are not able to be ourselves. Our lives are limited by our response to the Fight, Flight, or Freeze response. These primitive physiological responses are about survival or no hope.
When we live our lives with anxiety, we see others and circumstances as threats. Our perception of danger changes our thoughts and behavior.
When you learn to calm yourself, the world looks different. We are able to distinguish what is actually dangerous and what is safe. We can see the creative possibilities in our relationships and our work.
