Anxious about Anxiety


As a parent with a child with Anxiety it was so easy to mirror that emotion.


His anxiety would give me anxiety.


I didn't even have anxiety to start with.


He would come to me with his worry and anxieties


or I would see it play out within him and I would start to be anxious about him getting anxious.


I would try to avoid things so that he wouldn't get anxious.


I would try and cushion things so he wouldn't get anxious.


I would try and protect him any way I could.


It was exhausting.


I was having so much of my own anxiety about it all.


Finally I realized that my Anxiety about his Anxiety was not helping anyone.


Not him.


Not me.


Not anyone.


It took some time,


But I started to see that it was ok that he felt anxiety and I didn't have to feel it with him.
