It won’t, if you will it

Do you find yourself feeling anxious?
What is anxiety?
Not knowing what the future will bring us is anxiety. But why do we fret over this. Because, anxiety stems from worry. And worry is the repository of the past. Worries are those un-manifested ‘what ifs’.
Either, they never happened, in which case, there should be no cause for worry. Even if something did happen, was it really that bad? Worry is that formless fear, related to past events, imagining worst case scenarios, and magnifying them to levels they unfathomable. Fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of loneliness, fear of isolation. It’s not like anything happened. It’s only that, we have convinced ourselves, ‘it will’. Leading to anxiety. Anxiety, therefore becomes the possible manifestation of the worry that may be.
Ask yourself,
‘Is this really true?,
Can it be true?,
How many of my past worries have come true?’.
Now, add in some happy and optimistic thoughts. Give yourself a choice. And a chance. Spend more time with optimism. With nice thoughts. Happiness. The future is a cheerful place. Today is better than yesterday. Now, where is the time to worry? There is no worry, no anxiety if you don’t give place to it. Anxiety won’t, if you will it so.
“The truth is that there is no actual stress or anxiety in the world; it’s your thoughts that create these false beliefs.” – Wayne Dyer
