There are days when everything seems to be perfect: the sun is up, you’re on time to every appointment, people smile at you, you smile for no reason. Everything just fits in. And then you wake up the next day and anxiety kicks in from the moment you open your eyes. You just know that “today is not a good day for science”, or anything else.
Needless to say, these are the days you need to make a choice: you either fight or flight. Yes, maybe a Xanax will kick in shortly and keep you going just enough to avoid any long term damages. But is it worthy screwing up your neurons, knowing it might not be the first nor the last time you’re in need? Or would you be better off with taking a chance and facing the dreaded day ahead?
I’d say the latter; inasmuch as it hurts, facing your own fears head on is way more beneficial on the long term. The more you force yourself to get out of your comfort zone, the more you learn and evolve into the being that some day will no longer find a similar situation so uncomfortable. Use meditation as a tool to overcome any stressful situation and the anxiety that comes when dealing with it. It may require time and patience to adapt to it, but the sense of fulfillment at the thought of using your own powers is much more liberating than the easiness of quick fixes. Trust yourself and your potential.
