Why does alleviating certain anxious thoughts require so much slow and deliberate thinking? I suppose it takes practice...and is ultimately worth it.
Reminds me of this verse: "Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters! Let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger" James 1.19.
It's often about understanding what you're reacting to, and modifying that reaction. So slowing down and reflecting in the right way can help that.
Good thing to keep in mind. Thanks!
It is worth it! Your wellbeing must be a priority.
Have you looked into meditation?
I should try it...sometimes thinking too much makes the anxiety worse
