We’re living through the back end of the Covid pandemic at the moment and the underlying ‘pandemic’ of Anxiety is on the rise.
This wretched, highly contagious virus increased the instensity and depth of our anxiety and this has reached ‘pandemic; levels too. We might not be so frightened of catching the disease, but it certainly has changed our lives and the increased cost of living is causing huge anxiety for some.

What causes anxiety?
My understanding is that anxiety comes from fear. And no, they are not the same thing.
Imagine a volcano. Anxiety is like the hot molten rock that swirls and churns far beneath the surface of the earth. It’s always there, just looking for a ‘trigger’ and a crack in the earth’s crust so it can force its way through. It then erupts into hot, full blown fear that paralyses us.
I believe the cause of anxiety comes from being afraid you’ll be hurt. It also comes from feeling you have no self-confidence and wont be able to cope with what life throws at you. AS well as having no confidence, being critised is extremely hurtful. And right now, our anxiety about how we are going to manage today – let alone being anxious about the future.
You may not have thought of it in this way, but we don’t feel just one emotion at a time. So within our anxiety, there’ll be a few other feelings but the bottom line will be that your anxiety sucks every ounce of confidence out of you.
I know I’ve said it before, and I’m sure I’ll say it again, I believe that confidence is the foundation of a happy life. Even if you’re confident, you might not be able to cope with every situation that life throws at you, but at least you’re confident enough to give it a try.
