Why do I feel anxious?

Why do I feel anxious?
There's this feeling deep in the pit of my stomach probably 99% of the time that says something is going to go wrong...someone will hurt you...you'll be blamed...(why do I feel like this?)

I have so much to be thankful for and so many lovely people and family in my life and yet this lie keeps me scared to death - can I 'get over it'? How do I do that...pray more? talk more? listen more? Any ideas from anyone would be helpful!!

Ahhh...how the mind plays tricks on us...x

Followed you here after reading your comment on my friend Anna's blog.

Just take things a step at a time and either the feeling will fade or you'll be prepared if something should happen.

Take care.

I followed here from the comment you left on my blog this morning (thanks!).

Anxiety is tough, isn't it? It sounds like you've pegged the major things that I think of - prayer, talking with trusted people, and listening. The only things I would add to that - finding a trusted friend who will sit down and pray with me, and getting some exercise. And maybe making sure I'm getting some regular sleep (hah! :) ).

Praying for you now...
