It's a common and innocent misunderstanding that worrying about things, or feeling anxious, is in someway keeping us and our loved ones safe. Or that it helps us to prepare to deal with challenging events, should they happen, and/or that worrying stops difficult things from happening. We also know that anxiety and worry feels rubbish and takes us away from being present in our lives.
I use an analogy to help explain why anxiety isn't the thing keeping us safe. And explore how the thing that is keeping us safe isn't anything to do with our mind. Worrying is a habit of thinking that people often find hard to let go of, but if we can see it isn't actually helping, we naturally stop worrying.
Any comments or questions, I'd love to hear from you!
