Almost there

Well I am nearing the end of my CBT course of treatment for my GAD (worrying). I have taken the postpone worrying and "worry time" further. I have learned to challenge the problems at worry time rather than just going over them which will hopefully in the long term help me to automatically challenge my anxious thoughts immediately before I can begin stressing over them. Secondly I have tried to "Let go" of worries where you remain passive and observe rather than engage with them. The latter is not so easy! I find I can manage this with minor issues or things I have no control over but for anything more intense or troublesome I need to know I can come back to it later or it will nag away at me all day. Maybe oneday...

Now I am tackling the acceptance of uncertainty which is the main catalyst in worrying. This is the thing! The main aspect of my problem which I really need to come to terms with. But it is the just not knowing...

  1. I wish you good luck on your journey to reconcile with uncertainty. Worry is good when it's necessary; that means, during situations become dire but not on small nuances, I believe.

    Hard as it is, we really have to let the ship of worries sail.

    If you don't mind, I would like to ask a favor from you. Can you evaluate this counseling site? I have heard that their services could satisfy our need for good mental health. This could also be a good resource in your future posts. Thank you so much. Have a nice day.
