Working through anxiety does take courage and commitment. Facing anxiety provoking situations is not easy. As a person with anxiety, I try to push myself to face these situations. When I get up face to face with the situation, I always wonder it seemed like such a great idea at the time, think of not showing up, and then talk myself into just doing it anyways. It’s not easy, but so far, I’ve always come out alive! There are a few things I find very helpful in managing anxiety, and even taking it away completely.
