YOU’RE FEELING ANXIOUS AND NO MATTER WHAT, YOU CAN’T CATCH A BREAK. THE SMALLEST WORRIES STRESS YOU OUT BEYOND BELIEF. YOUR ANXIETY IS OUT OF CONTROL.
Maybe you’re exhausted because your mind is constantly turning thinking of all the things. You are mentally done.
Let’s talk about your never-ending to-do list. It just continues to grow and you’re not sure how much longer you can go on like this. All signs lead to burnout. If somebody adds just one more thing to your list…
You. Might. Just. SNAP.
Speaking of SNAP. You’ve probably snapped at your loved ones or at the dog. You’ve definitely snapped at that driver that cut you off, and goodness if your neighbor catches you at the wrong moment, you may snap on him too.
But this isn’t you and you know that. Who is this person? You just feel lost.
You’ve become distant from friends and family but only because you’re craving a break. When they ask “how are you?” You give a simple “meh” or “I’m okay.”
Over the years, your anxiety symptoms have told you that you are responsible for everyone’s happiness and safety so you can’t possibly let them down now. It’s all on you to maintain this idea of perfection.
Anxiety may impact different areas of your life including family, work, health, and social relationships. While everyone experiences anxiety differently below are some common anxiety symptoms:
Believing Something Bad is Going to Happen
Feeling like you have your life back. Regaining that personal power and getting yourself back in control.
Coming home after a long day and being able to sit down without a constant nagging thought of what you “should” be doing. Girl, go ahead and enjoy that glass of wine and kick your feet up!
Hearing that inner critic and knowing it’s just some bullshit that you can choose not to listen to.
Spending time with family and friends, feeling happy, and enjoy being present.
It’s possible, and it’s what we here at Suffolk Family Therapy want to accomplish with you.
