It's often very important to consider the feelings of those around you. However, things have gone too far if you're constantly worrying about what other people are feeling. If you suffer from anxiety because you've stopped being concerned about your own feelings and you're only focusing on the feelings of others, these tips are for you.
Direct Your Distress Into a Positive Activity
You can burn a lot of energy worrying about what other people are feeling. It would be more productive to channel that energy into a positive activity. Perhaps you've always wanted to learn how to paint, or you're good at math and wish to tutor children after school. By taking classes in something new or engaging in an activity you're passionate about, you'll have less time to allow anxiety to take over your life. If you're not sure what passion you should pursue, a psychic telephone reading can help you narrow down your choices.
Work on Mindfulness
Much of what we worry about has to do with events that might happen in the future. Mindfulness, a key concept in Buddhist philosophy, seeks to bring your awareness back to the present and help you accept things as they are. This relaxation technique allows you to acknowledge your worries instead of fighting them, but it also teaches you how to let those worries go instead of trying to control them. While some practice mindfulness through exercises such as meditation and yoga, simple breathing techniques can also help bring you back to the present so you can stop worrying.
Understand How Others Affect You
Sometimes, the people we surround ourselves with are the reason for our anxiety. If you're not sure how other people are affecting your mood, keep a journal to record your interactions with others and how they make you feel. You may notice that a friend or family member who has a quick temper or is impossible to please is the cause of much of your stress. Psychic readers can also tell you who might be bringing worry into your life.
Start to impose some relationship boundaries on people who stress you out, and cut back the amount of time you spend with them. Also, find other people you feel relaxed around, and make it a point to interact with them more often.
Many times, worry and anxiety come from uncertainty about the future and how people will react to certain situations. While your mind may think it can control the future by worrying about it, that is simply not the case. Instead, important steps in letting go of anxiety include accepting the uncertainty that the future holds, and understanding that you have no control over it.
It may be hard to realize that you're not to blame for the way other people feel. However, you will live anxiety-free once you do.
