6 things people with anxiety need to know

Many women I know who have anxiety don’t appear to have it.

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be a weepy, exhausted, or panicking mess. I mean, severe anxiety can leave you with many of these symptoms (and more, if you’re anything like I was when I was at my worst), but plenty of other women out there fake it well enough to hide their anxiety.

Those people suffer in silence, quietly dealing with their diagnosis through tactics society promotes. They see self-care activities, anti-stress strategies, and plenty of people willing to talk about how their anxiety debilitates them, and so they feel a mixture of a few things:

  • Relieved they aren’t alone
  • Partially comforted that these strategies exist
  • Annoyed that there’s no cure and they always have to do something — or avoid something — to feel normal

And while the first two feelings listed are logical, the last one is based on a cultural belief that simply isn’t true.

Because you can cure anxiety. 

Yes, it can be completely gone and it doesn’t take years of therapy to make it happen.

Here are 6 things I wish people with anxiety knew about – DUH – anxiety.

1. It doesn’t have to run your life

If you are one of those people who avoids crowds or public events because of worry, fear and even physical symptoms…

Or if you’ve been diagnosed and are now convinced you have to suffer, it’s time to change that mindset. Anxiety does not have to be the first and last thing you think about every day. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be something you keep.

I know this probably sounds insane, but can you imagine it? Can you imagine a day when the decisions you make are not based on what you worry will happen later? When you don’t have to work around something that will trigger you? If you can’t, it’s likely hard for you to imagine the possibility.

2. Talking yourself out of emotions doesn’t work

This is not to say you shouldn’t talk about how you feel but, instead, that talking shouldn’t be the only form of help you get. Plenty of types of therapy are out there that do not solely rely on talking about how you feel. And they tend to work faster than individual, conversational therapy because the thoughts you share or express are used in a more structured way, working in conjunction with how your brain works.

As science and research evolve, so should strategies on how to deal with anxiety. Talk therapy might be great at helping you feel less shame, blame or even guilt, but it doesn’t eradicate the actual emotion you’re talking about. There are better ways to do this.

3. Fear needs to be heard, seen and expressed

If you’re human, you feel fear at some point — whether or not it’s the first emotion/reaction to surface. Fear is almost always at the root of what holds us back, and it can annihilate connections we have with other people. Women often fear they are unworthy, unlovable, unable to execute, undeniably broken.

See what I mean? And even in acknowledging why we may feel unworthy, we don’t often talk about why that’s so scary.

As a business consultant, fear is what held most of my clients back. As a writing coach, fear was what made getting words on the page and pressing publish so damn impossible for my writers. As a human, fear is what kept me stuck in a job I wasn’t happy with, in marriages that weren’t working, and inside my own anxiety when I didn’t believe it was possible to make it better.

When you give a voice to the fear that goes along with your negative belief, it helps eradicate it quicker.

4. Anxiety is curable

Search online for anxiety treatments and you’ll find thousands of articles about how to cope. You’ll also find blog posts helping family members and loved ones.

What you don’t find is a cure for anxiety.

This drives me more batshit than anything else now that the torturous anxiety I had for 15 years is completely gone.

I wake up daily without worrying about being a shitty mom to my kids while working hard on my business. I wake up knowing my marriage is safe and so is my sanity. I am happy. I know I can handle shit. I don’t suffer physical symptoms or worry they may appear at the worse possible times.

Bonus: It’s not scary to be vulnerable and share real emotion with people.

My anxiety is completely gone, and yours can be too. I struggled with it and fought it, just like everyone else. I read the books and tried the mantras. And then I found a new way to approach anxiety.

5. RTT helps you demolish anxiety

Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) is a hybrid therapy that offers results like nothing I’ve ever seen in my life.

It is essentially a combination of the most effective principles from several types of therapy, including hypnotherapy, NLP, psychotherapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

The technique was pioneered by Marisa Peer, who has been fine tuning it for over 30 years. Clinical trials have begun on this method because of its stunning success.

Marisa is a goddess when it comes to helping others heal. I witnessed her skill first-hand when I dropped thousands and cajoled her into finding a slot for me in her extraordinarily busy schedule. In 90 minutes, anxiety was erased from my life for good.

You better believe it was the best money I ever spent: It not only completely cured my anxiety, but it also made me a full-time believer in her work. That’s why I trained with her, got certified, and now offer RTT to my own clients. (100% success rate, by the way)

6. You can turn off anxiety forever

Stop telling yourself you can’t get rid of it or that your case of anxiety is too severe.

Stop believing you’ll be stuck carrying this baggage with you for the rest of your life.

Stop calling it yours. “My anxiety,” or “I have anxiety” tell your mind it’s part of you that you will never be free of, and that’s a big, fat lie.

Anxiety is such a bitch, it feels impossible to believe you can be healed as quickly as I’m telling you, but I promise you it’s true.

All you must do, to turn it off forever, is commit to a trained, professional RTT professional. You have to believe that it’s possible and sign up for a session.

The bottom line? There is a better, more finite way to rid yourself of crippling anxiety once and for all. RTT is exactly what so many people need.

Got questions? Hit reply.

You’re not stuck with anxiety forever. You don’t have to turn your world upside down to “deal” with it. It’s not permanently part of you.

Unless you want to keep it.

Can You Cope with Anxiety without Medication?

If I were only going to answer the question in the title, this would be the shortest blog post I’ve ever written because the answer is – obviously – yes. Yes, you can help anxiety without medication.

As someone who has lived with, endured, and struggled with anxiety for 15 years, I know it’s possible. What I want others to know, however, is something that the main stream media still hasn’t quite picked up on yet. Just think about it: how do we portray anxiety on the news, in blogs, and even on health practitioners’ websites?

We talk about having to deal with it for our entire existence. Doctors share self-care strategies to help cope with it, and they’ll prescribe drugs to diminish it, but nobody ever talks about curing the problem.

Emma Stone is all over the media lately talking about “her” anxiety, claiming it as if it’s a part of her. Yet, the single worst thing anyone can do when they want to be rid of something is call it theirs. The media even reported on a book she wrote as a kid to deal with it called “I am bigger than my anxiety” – that fucking word again.

What we tell our minds matters. And taking ownership of something you don’t have is stupid.

Anxiety manifests as fear, but also as a lack of confidence. If you’ve ever said something along the lines of, “I can’t do that, show up and sell, believe in myself, tell people I can help them,” it’s not uncommon. Women are taught not to (it’s just not polite) believe in themselves. AND because humans are programmed to avoid rejection, this is how we arrive and show up on the planet. We think this shit is something inherent in ourselves, but it’s really just screwy programming.

My opinion and experience are both unorthodox, but I’ll keep sharing until the conversations finally begin changing (hopefully in my lifetime):

Not only do you not need medicine to help you deal with anxiety, but you don’t need years of therapy, countless daily strategies, or a hell of a lot of luck and/or strength. You can be completely healed, anxiety free, full of conviction and confidence, and rid of every limiting belief and block forever.

How?

Rapid Transformational therapy (RTT).

It cures you of anxiety forever.

It’s a hybrid therapy technique accessing the subconscious, examining old programming keeping you stuck and then replacing it to get you unstuck.

Unstuck forever. No endless amounts of talk therapy; just immediate relief and results. Which is also a lot nicer on the piggy bank than shelling out countless dollars for session after session in an office.  The best part? Most of the time it only takes one session to cure your anxiety.

Through my work with Marisa Peer, I rid myself of anxiety that crippled me my entire adult life. It ruined relationships, made it hard to parent, and made me a shitty employee. Even when I began working for myself, my anxiety made me question whether I was worthy of the life I was building and, occasionally, would make me pull back and lose friendships, clients, and confidence.

Yes, I was doing well. But I wasn’t doing as well as I could have been had I known about RTT and the impact it would have on the rest of my life. Then, I found out about this method of curing anxiety and signed up immediately. Marisa herself did my RTT session ($5K for 90 minutes, best money I ever spent).

Now that I’m on the other side, it’s insane to think about where I might be if I’d only known sooner. If you’re an adult woman who’s ready to change her life forever, to stop relying on drugs or techniques that aren’t completely ridding you of angst and debilitating fear, this is for you. Imagine what an anxiety-free life might look like. What if you believed in yourself, said goodbye to guilt and shame, had massively better relationships, earned more money and lived life on your own terms?

Real talk:

Everything you have tried until now has likely been less effective than you wanted it to be, right? Otherwise, you wouldn’t still be looking for a solution. So, if you’re unhappy with the strategies you’re currently using, there’s no reason not to try a new way.

There’s no reason to keep trying things you feel don’t work.

But now I’m trying to convince you when – ultimately – I want you to make the choice on your own.

You’re not a prisoner if you have anxiety, you can be free right now. Even if you don’t choose to be healed this way, it’s your responsibility to find a way that works for you to stand up, stand out and be who you are. This is how women in business stay in business.
