Anxiety comes in many forms, and the first step to relieving its negative impact on your life is by facing your fears. In an age where social approval is endlessly sought after, many of us struggle with the fear of not being enough. Society asks us to excel at work, maintain a variety of relationships, and create a healthy physical image.
When we feel like we are failing in any of these areas, anxiety tends to creep in and hinder our ability to take action for a healthier outlook on these issues. When we change our perception of these standards, we can recognize that they are simply a social and mental construct instead of the reality that surrounds us. It’s time to leave this unnecessary worry behind and appreciate the value you possess. You are enough simply by being brought into this world and have dignity through your participation in the unfolding of life.
This doesn’t mean we should be complacent about how we interact with the world, but rather, it should give us the courage to build a life we are proud of. This is possible through forming healthier attitudes and beliefs about your self-worth.
A great tool to begin discovering these life driven attitudes is through individual counseling. By working with a trained professional at Stonebriar Counseling Associates, you can pinpoint the anxiety brought about by social pressures and adopt healthier attitudes.
