"Anxiety is like cholesterol. There’s the good kind and the bad kind.”
Months before I started AC, I was one panic filled gal. The most simple adventures (grocery shopping, meeting a friend, walking in the park... even window shopping) suddenly became unachievable.
My therapist once said “Anxiety is like cholesterol. There’s the good kind and the bad kind.” Not to anyone’s surprise, I was only experiencing the bad kind.
It took me time to fully understand what she meant by “there’s a good kind of anxiety”. In my mind, anxiety was the enemy and hell no was I trying to explore it anymore.
Fast forward to now, I crave the good kind. The “I can’t wait to wake up and start creating” type of anxiety.
Has anyone else felt this shift? Rumination to creation? If not, let’s brainstorm ways together on how to get there.. even if it’s just temporary.
