Thought of the day

Here goes:  "Courage is not essentially the absence of fear, it is to keep going even when you are scared to death".
This isn't entirely original, I've seen similar quotes several times on the net. But I find that I can relate with it nicely. I fight anxiety (GAD) almost every single day and do my routine work: my job and everything else. This is what I do every day when I stick to what I am doing even though it makes me so anxious that I just want to throw it aside and run away. It's not easy, believe me. But when I have to do something despite significant anxiety I tell myself that its okay: courage to keep at it isn't merely absence of fear, it simply means to drag yourself through it anyway and get the job done. Just stay with the fight!


  1. I have the same struggles. Actually, once I finally told some people about it I found that it's not that uncommon. I changed my diet quite a bit and that has helped some. Good luck!

  2. I was in therapy for a while for this. That helped too. Its not as bad as it used to be. :-)
