  • Much of my anxiety comes from those things that I can not control (probably like most people). Over this past year there have been many situations that were out of my control and some of them at the same time. In Aug. and Sept. I had reached my limit! I was having anxiety attacks daily and was ready to quit my job (at the time the main source of my anxiety). I have been learning lessons and realizing my strength as I work through these situations. The biggest thing I have learned is… I do not have control over other people and their decisions. I have to do what I feel is right for me and speak my needs. If I examine my conscience and heart and feel I am making the decision for a good reason, that is what should matter. I am learning not to worry about what other people think about me. The people who matter will love me and respect me for taking care of myself.

    • Wow, it sounds like you are doing really good work on yourself and you are so right. Much of the time it’s our striving to control someone else’s behavior that gives us suffering. Proud of you.

  • I didn’t realize anxiety comes from different areas of the brain. I knew that parts developed at an early age, but didn’t realize as young as 3. The coping strategies are so important right now for everyone!

  • It was nice to learn the science behind the stress and anxiety. It helped me to better understand why some of my students act out without thought when anxious when some of my others just shut down.
