Anticipatory Anxiety - We All Have It

Anticipatory Anxiety - We All Have It

"I'VE LIVED THROUGH SOME TERRIBLE THINGS IN MY LIFE,
SOME OF WHICH ACTUALLY HAPPENED"
- MARK TWAIN

I remember so clearly the first time I read this quote. I was living at home, a few months into the start of actually getting help with my anxiety. I had just started doing yoga. I was soaking up all the mental health information that I could and was specifically drawn to the stories of people who had been through something similar. It was comforting to hear that I wasn't the only one with a mind that ran wild.
