I am not sure what is meant by ‘letting the anxiety and the attacks happen’. They are so much a part of my life I don’t know how to separate them from myself.
When we are feeling happy, we don’t continually monitor our feeling of happiness or think of how happy we are, we just let the feeling of happiness be there as we get on with whatever we are doing. The same applies to the feelings of anxiety and the attacks. We can separate ourselves from them simply by noting them, ‘this is anxiety, this is an attack’. We just let them be there, without concentrating on them. Not concentrating on them allows us to concentrate on other aspects of our lives. The same is true for temporary feelings of depression. We need to be aware of why we are depressed and we let ourselves be depressed, but we don’t become the depression. If we don’t add to it by continually worrying about how depressed we are, it will disappear because we are not fuelling it. Of course, it does depend on the degree of your depression. If the depression stays with you it will need to be treated by your therapist.
