“We are not our minds, our thoughts aren’t truths and you are not crazy or alone in this.”
How we develop a running narrative that believes and supports our fear thoughts, and how to stop it.
Why resisting and trying to force our thoughts to stop only increases the energy of anxiety, and what to try instead.
