There is only one person responsible for your anxiety — and that is you. Taking charge of your anxiety, learning tools and treatments to help manage it, working as a partner with medical professionals to get the support you need — these are huge steps you can take towards a better life.
In the 4th installment of our “101 Anxiety Tips” series, we look at responsibility. We explore how responsibility is different than blame, how educating yourself on your anxiety can create a sense of freedom, and how being an “active patient” with your doctor can lead to better overall physical and mental health. I hope you enjoy it.
Be at peace, D 😊
