anxiety is a liar!

Anxiety loves to tell lies. Whether it’s something like “my friends hate me” or “I can’t leave the house, it’s not safe” or “I’m going to fail this test"- anxiety likes to reinterpret the world in a negative way. But the biggest lie anxiety tells you is that it’s telling you all of these awful lies for your own good; anxiety lies by telling you that it’s just trying to keep you safe. 😒

What we need to do is:

1. Recognize Anxiety- remember our thoughts are not always true! Identify which thoughts are anxious thoughts and which are the truth. 

2. Talk back - speak the truth to anxiety, rewrite your thoughts! 🌿

Let’s challenge anxiety together today! 💕
