Anisha, it is indeed, but without that taking a deeper look at the core it’s hard to ever find healing.

It’s easy for someone to say “I don’t know” or “I don’t want to think about it because it causes me more anxiety,” but when we do that we’re never able to put the pieces together and see a bigger picture. It’s like stepping back from a stained glass window. Up close it just looks like jagged shards, but the further back that you step away you begin to see the whole picture. Right now, anxiety may seem like a series of disconnected and jagged shards that are causing pain and worry. But I’ve found that when I take a step back and begin piecing those shards together, I get a more accurate picture.And that leads to little steps of healing like I talked about.
