    Anxiety is the denial of the natural emotion of fear.

    Not only have they programmed you that you shouldn’t feel fear but also that you should be ashamed of fear.


    You are NOT dysregulated; THEY are.

    If someone calls you an anxious person, all they say is that they are WAY more fearful and ashamed of fear than you.

    Please, stop trying to appear calm in front of people who are way more fearful than you.

    If they say that you should manage your anxiety, tell them there isn’t such thing as anxiety.

    It’s their belief that you should be ashamed of fear.

    Allow yourself to fear anything and feel free to show your fear to anyone.

    Much love, Angelos
