Allow the process of recovery to take as long as it needs to take – it won’t happen over night but it will happen.
If anxiety problems are related to childhood or other traumatic events, which have created a feeling of not being safe in the world, it may be very beneficial to seek expert help.
Ultimately, however, every form of effective therapy, counselling, 12 Step Programme or self-help technique works because it helps you to get to the point where you are able to change your thinking.
This always involves allowing yourself to ‘let go’ in some way –

- of the past,
- of hurts,
- resentments or disappointment,
- of the need to control,
- of anxiety over what can’t be controlled,
- to accept what can’t be changed
and to stop resisting life.
