I do not know about you, but attempting to accomplish a new “thing” creates stress and anxiety.
Stress and Anxiety in Me
The reason for this stress is two fold. One, filters being damaged in my brain and two, a fear of failure.
A fear of failure stemming from a fear of being blamed and shamed for not doing the “thing” perfectly.
Faced with Several “things”
Recently, I have been faced with several new “things” that I need to accomplish. Both, of which started the cycle of stress and anxiety in me. But, thank God after my morning meditation and asking God to help I received some helpful guidance. Guidance that reminded me that I could break the “things” down.
Guidance that reminded me that I could accomplish the “things” in manageable steps. In the process, I could take steps to manage my stress and anxiety.
In the event that you are living with a brain injury and like me experience stress and anxiety, let me make a suggestion. If you have a “thing” to accomplish, break the “thing” into manageable steps. As you do, like me, you may find, as I have, that you are able to manage your stress and anxiety to accomplish your “thing”.
