The Gift of Anxiety
Many view me as very well organized, clean and efficient.
They see this as a gift.
What they don’t know is that I am this way because I have to be.
I struggle with anxiety.
I need things to be well organized and clean otherwise I might have a difficult time focusing.
If things aren’t in such a way, it will wear on me, cause me to become irritable and trigger my anxiety.
Sometimes I get anxious and I don’t know why, but what seems to calm me down is cleaning and organizing.
It’s the one thing I can control in that moment and the end result is a centered mind.
What others see as a gift is the result of my battle with anxiety.
Challenges are a part of life.
We can let them cripple us or we can let them strengthen us.
Our challenges bring out our gifts.
