Your heart beats rapidly as though it might burst through your chest any minute. Your hands are sweaty and your stomach is tied up in knots. You feel like you can’t catch your breath.
It’s hard to concentrate. You know logically that there is no reason to feel the fear that is gripping your gut, but you feel out-of-control powerless to do anything about it.
Your muscles become primed to act, leading to a trembling sensation, twitching, or shaking. You feel light-headed and there’s a feeling of motion or spinning inside rather than in the environment. Sometimes there is a sense of swaying even though you are standing still. You feel so weak that you might pass out. The thought of passing out frightens you, which can cause more symptoms and fear.
And this is not the first time this has happened.
Does this sound familiar? If you have ever felt like this, you are not alone.
That’s how anxiety feels like.
If you allow your anxiety to take over your life, you will lose your sense of self-purpose and forget who you really are.
Here’s what would happen.
You isolate yourself while all of your friends go out because the thoughts of leaving your house make you feel overwhelmed.
You don’t like sitting alone in your room because it makes you feel uncomfortable and you feel like there’s something missing but your body refuses to move so you’d rather lay in bed alone.
You say no on trying something new because you’re constantly overthinking and you’re afraid of failing.
You can’t do the things you love because of your fear of failure, your fear of what could happen, and your fear of success.
You really want to have a good night’s sleep but your mind won’t let you. It’s so active, you can’t push your thought aside.
You’re pushing people away because you’re too afraid to get close. You think you’re not good enough, and suddenly you find yourself in a panic because you are experiencing anxiety around losing your loved ones.
You try to explain to everyone around you when you feel suffocated and you feel you couldn’t breathe, but people who care about you say that everything is fine when it doesn’t feel that way. They don’t get the experience of worry, guilt, shame, and panic in situations that don’t typically cause such intense feelings in them.
You start to think, “Why doesn’t anyone seem to understand?”
I get it. No, you’re not crazy. This used to happen to me all the time.
Anxiety can feel so real and not everyone fully understands how difficult it is to control.
Which is exactly why I decided to tell you how to overcome anxiety for good.
Why Coping Mechanism Only Makes Anxiety Worse
I see a lot of so-called experts encourage people with anxiety to cope and control the feeling.
The thing is, anxiety doesn’t go away just by chewing gum to relax your nervousness.
Anxiety doesn’t go away just by telling someone to breath.
Anxiety doesn’t go away just by playing a game to forget how anxious you were.
Anxiety doesn’t go away just by reading a book to give you something to concentrate and focus on or listening to music to turn your mood around.
Anxiety doesn’t go away just by talking to a friend to get the encouragement we need to push through because it’s just feeding into the problems.
Anxiety doesn’t go away just by pushing yourself to do something that scares you. This could be anything from phoning someone to getting out there and meeting new people. Forcing someone with an anxiety disorder to “feel the fear and do it anyway” will make things exponentially worse. It generates feelings of shame for being unable to control their feelings.
Why? Because anxiety is an ongoing problem that doesn’t just go away overnight.
When you tell yourself to not let anxiety control you, it’s just pasting a thin layer of positive emotion on top of problems. If you try to change them from a place of simply manipulating them, they only grow.
Instead, why not just let it go?
I used to suffer from constant anxiety so it’s not true that people with anxiety can’t “let go” because our brain simply doesn’t work that way.
I know that it’s possible to let anxiety go. But it’s not the kind of “just let it go of it” to shut us up or suppress the feelings.
So what kind of letting go that I’m talking about?
How to Overcome Anxiety For Good
There are two common treatments for anxiety and fear:
1. You could medicate yourself.
There are commonly prescribed drugs for suppressing the symptoms of anxiety and fear. They provide temporary relief from anxiety and fear symptoms, but common side effects range from clumsiness and dizziness to loss of sexual desire, muscle spasms, and vomiting. Not fun.
The drugs used in the treatment of anxiety and fear can also be quite habit-forming. Some of the side effects of withdrawal from their use include the reoccurrence of all the symptoms that the medication was masking in the first place, plus many extreme reactions like bizarre behavior, depression, convulsions, and hallucinations.
These drugs come with a very heavy price to your pocketbook, your self-esteem, your health, and your well-being.
2. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy is an action-oriented form of psychosocial therapy that assumes that maladaptive, or faulty, thinking patterns cause maladaptive behavior and “negative” emotions. The treatment focuses on changing an individual’s thoughts in order to change his or her behavior and emotional state.
This is often a long, costly, and painful process that sometimes creates a dependent relationship with the therapist.
There is also a third, highly-effective and reasonably priced alternative to both of these approaches:

“I’m the type of person that gets anxious easily and I couldn’t express my feelings. These traits made me depressed because I suppressed almost everything. To help me with this, my mom took me to do releasing coaching with Adelia.

Feel your anxiety and fear dissolve on the spot
We tend to pushing anxiety down and running away from emotions.
Those are the most common and most harmful things you can do with a feeling.
Anxiety is still there. You just ignore that. And it’s not helpful.
Our fears and doubts also make us defensive. When we are defensive, we are holding in mind what we don’t want, so that’s what we get.
As you release your defensiveness, you see solutions instead of problems. As you naturally hold in mind what you want, you’ll know how to be pro-active and win every time.

- Ask yourself this simpler question: “When?” This is an invitation to just let it go NOW.
Repeat the preceding five steps as often as needed until you feel free of that particular feeling.
You may find yourself easily letting go. Remember that letting go is a decision you can make any time you choose.
