HOW LEARNING THE SECRET TO FIGHTING WORRY GIVES YOU YOUR LIFE BACK
A Quiet time for my heart
FIGHTING WORRY MEANS FEELING OUR FEELINGS
The easiest way for me to cope with the season of worry was to become so busy that I couldn’t be bothered to think about what was happening. If I was busy, it meant I didn’t have to stop and feel the sadness, anxiety, and worry that felt like it would overwhelm me.
Over time, I realized I was numbing myself from being able to feel what I was so scared to let in. I was letting fear control my life.
I learned that I took my life back from worry by allowing myself to feel my feelings.
Once I started to feel, I started to heal.

So "help me", a phrase the seemingly independent strong adult hates to say but yet needs too, so desperately?
