anxiety; what anais nin has to say…


Anxiety is love’s greatest killer.

It makes others feel as you might when a drowning person holds on to you.

You want to save that person, but you know he or she will strangle you with his or her panic.

Very true. Anais Nin wrote this in 1947.  It is still apt in 2015.  We get anxious all the time even though we know better. Some days are easier than others.  Some days we are more in control. The days when the moon is not full.  Other days, when it is, we can’t help ourselves when we twist and turn in angst over another.

I'm a woman living in London and this blog captures what lands within my sight and connects with my psyche. I expect it to evolve naturally. It is a place I shall visit from time to time and where things that I am touched by deeply will find a soft place to land. As a psychotherapist and a continuing student, most of the articles you shall find here will somehow, in some way, be related to therapy and well-being. I love comments, so feel free to add yours, whenever and however. I wish you well.
