How To Overcome Anxiety & Fear

I’ve always been very open about the fact that I have anxiety and it’s definitely not something I’m ashamed of and I’m not embarrassed to talk about it either. Obviously, I feel way more comfortable talking about it on my blog than in real life. I don’t know anyone who suffers from anxiety in real life (or they might not choose to share it with other people like me). Through my blog, I was able to find other people who are in the same boat as I which I’m extremely grateful for.

When it comes to anxiety, I think it’s a journey and lifelong battle where there isn’t really a finish line. Personally, for me I’ve come to terms that I’m always going to be an anxious person in some capacity. There are days when I’m able to control my anxiety and there are days when I’m not able to and that’s completely ok. Overcoming such a huge thing is obviously not easy and can’t happen overnight but you can definitely control it and not let it dictate your life and that’s what I wanted to share with you in today’s post.

J’ai toujours été très ouvert sur le fait que j’ai de l’anxiété et ce n’est certainement pas quelque chose dont j’ai honte et je ne suis pas gêné d’en parler non plus. Évidemment, je me sens beaucoup plus à l’aise d’en parler sur mon blog que dans la vraie vie. Je ne connais personne qui souffre d’anxiété dans la vraie vie (ou ils pourraient ne pas choisir de le partager avec d’autres personnes comme moi). Grâce à mon blog, j’ai pu trouver d’autres personnes qui sont dans le même bateau que moi, ce pour quoi je suis extrêmement reconnaissante.

En ce qui concerne l’anxiété, je pense que c’est un voyage et une bataille de toute une vie où il n’ya pas vraiment de ligne d’arrivée. Personnellement, pour moi, j’en suis venu à accepter que je serai toujours une personne anxieuse dans une certaine mesure. Il y a des jours où je suis capable de contrôler mon anxiété et il y a des jours où je ne suis pas capable de le faire et c’est tout à fait normal. Surmonter une chose aussi énorme n’est évidemment pas facile et ne peut pas se faire du jour au lendemain, mais vous pouvez certainement la contrôler et ne pas la laisser dicter votre vie et c’est ce que je voulais partager avec vous dans le message d’aujourd’hui.

FIGURE THE TRIGGERS

I think the first step is to figuring out what your triggers are. What makes you anxious? What makes you uneasy? Answering these questions will help you find out what are the things that make you feel uncomfortable and trigger your anxiety. Then, you will be able to find a solution whether it’s to distance yourself from those things or even remove them out of your life.

Je pense que la première étape consiste à déterminer quels sont vos déclencheurs. Qu’est-ce qui vous rend anxieux? Qu’est-ce qui vous inquiète? Répondre à ces questions vous aidera à découvrir quelles sont les choses qui vous mettent mal à l’aise et déclenchent votre anxiété. Ensuite, vous serez en mesure de trouver une solution, que ce soit de vous éloigner de ces choses ou même les retirer de votre vie.

ESTABLISH BOUNDARIES

Establishing boundaries is extremely important! I know that for some people, they associate guilt along boundaries because they think it can seem selfish but in my opinion, you need to learn how to take care of yourself first before you tend to other people’s needs. Prioritising your mental well being isn’t a bad thing at all! As I mentioned in the previous point, you have to do what you got to do. If something doesn’t bring you peace nor joy then why are you wasting your peace of mind?

L’établissement de limites est extrêmement important! Je sais que pour certaines personnes, ils associent la culpabilité à des limites parce qu’ils pensent que cela peut sembler égoïste, mais à mon avis, vous devez apprendre à prendre soin de vous avant de vous occuper des besoins des autres. Donner la priorité à votre bien-être mental n’est pas du tout une mauvaise chose! Comme je l’ai mentionné au point précédent, vous devez faire ce que vous avez à faire. Si quelque chose ne vous apporte ni paix ni joie, pourquoi gaspillez-vous votre tranquillité d’esprit?

FOCUS ON THE THINGS THAT MATTER

Every time you feel like your focus is shifting to something negative, shift your focus to the things that you can control or are in control of. In addition, create a routine that helps you feel relaxed! Follow that routine every single day or every time you feel stressed. Stay away from things that don’t make you feel great or create a negative space in your head.

Chaque fois que vous sentez que votre concentration se déplace vers quelque chose de négatif, concentrez-vous sur les choses que vous pouvez contrôler ou que vous contrôlez. De plus, créez une routine qui vous aide à vous sentir détendu! Suivez cette routine chaque jour ou chaque fois que vous vous sentez stressé. Éloignez-vous des choses qui ne vous font pas vous sentir bien ou qui créent un espace négatif dans votre tête.

  1. I’ve just written a very similar post about anxiety. It’s something I feel strongly about – letting other people know that there are so many of us out there. I’m very anxious today and I have no idea why. I’m sure it will pass if I try and focus

  2. Love this post! I have anxiety too so this is helpful. I try so hard to not let anxiety control my thoughts and like how I feel cause it really puts me in a horrible state. I started a self-healing journey and it’s helping me “control” it somehow and focus on what matters. I do get anxious a lot when it comes to my visa and government stuff, so that’s the hardest for me to deal with cause it’s actually important stuff and I can’t just ignore them 😂

    1. Thank you so much lovely! ❤️ I haven’t started a self-healing journey yet but I’ve heard it helped a lot of people. I’m definitely thinking of starting one. The government stuff gives anxiety to everyone haha 😂

  3. Woww!! This post was awesome..😊😊🤗🤗 And today only I thought that whether if you have post or not at the same time I you have posted. I was very happy. ❣❣And you are always amazing. Hope you are doing great. Hoping that you have a blessed and happy day. Sending hugs.💖💖💖

  4. Fear and anxiety only drains the person and results in less focus and energy and that’s one thing i learnt the hardest of ways like when i’m calm I can achieve more~ Thank you for the wonderful topic dear~ 💕💖🙈

  5. This: “Every time you feel like your focus is shifting to something negative, shift your focus to the things that you can control or are in control of.” Such great advice. So hard to do when you get into a spiral. I find it helpful to put reminders into my phone that pop up periodically and remind me that I’m ok and that I can reframe a negative focus. Thanks so much for this.

  6. Great post here Friend. I think you have written well and you have good recommendations here. Another thing that I would like to add is this: let go and let God. We do not have to be in control of everything and some things are outside of our control, concerning those things, it is okay to pray to God for help, God is always happy to hear from us and he loves it when we try to build a relationship with him.

    The Bible says in Philippians 4:6
    “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God”.

    God says in Jeremiah 29:11
    “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.

    Therefore, sometimes it is best to let go of the situation and let God handle it. I hope this information helps.

    If anyone reading is interested in building a relationship with God, I have a post on that here: https://christcenteredruminations.wordpress.com/2018/08/29/how-to-build-a-relationship-with-god/

    There is much more to know about God. I post frequently on my blog about topics related to God. You are welcome to follow my blog to keep up with my content.

    -All the best. May God bless you.
