Journal Prompt #2 - Resolving Anxiety

Updated: Oct 27, 2020

You might spend a great deal of time and energy worrying about what ‘might’ happen. If you struggle with frequent worries about the future, your relationships, finances, or anything else, you are suffering with anxiety.

Anxiety encompasses feelings of fear, worry, anxiety and unease. Anxiety is general and unfocused, and it runs in the background of your mind as ongoing worries about what ‘might’ happen in the future.

Your anxiety can show you how you have unmet emotional needs from your childhood for safety, security, love and reassurance. Anxiety can also point to places inside that feel personally neglected or socially rejected. Underneath your anxious thoughts live fear-based beliefs that have been conditioned since childhood, influenced by the emotional climate that you grew up in.

These beliefs are likely no longer be true, in that you have many more strengths and resources as an adult than when you were dependent on others as a child.

Journal Exercise

Write out a list of all the things you worry about. Pay special attention to "stories" that your anxious thoughts tell you. What is the worst you fear might happen in your life? Write a "worse case" scenario about what you most fear.

Bring your "worry stories" to your session, and together we can explore and heal the underlying beliefs and emotional conditioning that feeds into your anxiety.

With much care,

Shelley
