Insight For Living
by Help Me Understand
People tell me I'm too busy, that I need to take it easy. How do I explain that my biggest fear is the overwhelming anxiety—nearly panic&mdashfilling my soul as soon as I'm alone and all is quiet?
It's in those times my inner voice reminds me of all the bad things I've done in my past, all the people I've let down, and all the items I haven't crossed off my list. Instantly I feel deep regret, shame, and guilt for failing at life. Why would I slow down when it will make me feel horrible about myself? I'd rather not feel anything.
