Anxiety shows up in many different ways for different people. One of my ways is saying Yes to everything. It is a survival tactic for dealing with trauma. Except I don’t need it anymore.
Last week it felt like everything triggered my anxiety. Packing up the condo, moving into the RV, with the deadline of having to leave on Saturday. We left on Saturday, so win, but my anxiety kept telling me that I failed.
I never realized how much routine mattered to me. There is something so peaceful about knowing what you will do that day and how you will accomplish those things. It soothes my anxiety.
