Today I journaled about middle school. It was a rough time for me and was when my anxiety symptoms began. I started getting stomach pains and headaches back then. I wasn't popular I didn't have a girlfriend and I didn't have really close friends at the time. It was an isolation for me. I always wanted to be like and I wasn't back then. I always wanted to be good at something or recognized for something. Think of some activities you really enjoy doing. If you could do one of these activities without feeling stressed out, without having anxiety, and without worrying about your family, kids, job, etc. how would that feel? Why do you not do this activity more often? What steps could you take to do this activity stress free and without worrying about other things? Do this activity this week . I like to travel places and do things. Anything really. For a while and still some now I would get nervous anywhere I would go. I just fear going out for some reason. Maybe it has something to do with my comfort zone. The one thing I can think about to reduce my worry is just to go through and conquer by doing it. Same as I. Have with working out and gaming and other hands on activities for my pain riddled hands.
