Robin on Anxiety
Anxiety is excitement without breathing. Life creates uncertainty within us; anxiety and fear take hold of us because we fear the future. As a result, emotions overcome us and we let them take hold until we can’t breathe. If we want to move forward without limitations and fears, we need to be able to clarify our emotions. Knowing what is happening to us in a given moment helps us calm anxiety.
Outside the therapy room
Something happens deep within me as I near the salty air and the deep green sea. In reality, I am kept on my toes by my four daughters and life-long partner.
What I’m Reading…
The Choice – EDITH EGER
“The Choice” by Edith Eger’s is her mind blowing memoir of surviving Auschwitz. Now an internationally acclaimed psychologist, she draws on her own experiences and those she has helped and shows how true freedom can become possible once we confront our suffering. It is a profound examination of the human spirit, and our capacity to heal. “We have the capacity to hate and the capacity to love. Which one we reach for is up to us.” A profound message for the world as it is today!
