This is something I've been thinking about. I deal with GAD, a milder case, but still troubling. I am a writer.
I've noticed that once I can reconnect with my ambition, my goals and dreams -- it helps me shift focus away
from anxiety. Has anyone else noticed this?
For instance, even since I got cut from a novel contest on Amazon recently, I've been meaning to look up some cool publishers
that accept unagented writers. I found a terrific new publisher and started composing a cover letter, synopsis, 50 pages of my book, etc.
And as I've worked on this through Friday, I haven't felt anxious or purposeless like I sometimes do.
I'm a single gay man and would like a boyfriend, but I can't directly control that. I've been on all the online dating sites.
But there are things I can control. Like doing more physical exercise to reduce anxiousness, etc.
Do you guys think that connecting to one's ambitions in life is partly a key to transcending anxiety? If so, I'd like to hear
your experiences of this helping you!
