DO I HAVE TO STOP BEING AFRAID TO TRULY ACCEPT ANXIETY (AND TO GET BETTER)?

Good question.  But this is a backwards interpretation of acceptance so let’s clarify.

  • Acceptance is not finding a way to turn off your fear
  • Acceptance is not figuring out some method for hating your anxiety less
  • Acceptance is not about creating a new state of being or feeling from an emotional or mental standpoint

Acceptance is an ACTION, not a feeling.

Acceptance is a precursor to less fear, acceptance is not the result of less fear.   This is critical because it keeps quite a number of people stuck, so let's talk about it on episode 288 of The Anxious Truth.
