Feeling Anxious vs. Chronic Anxiety: What's The Difference?
Everyone experiences anxiety, but there’s a BIG DIFFERENCE between feeling anxious occasionally, and suffering from chronic anxiety and anxiety disorders.
People who experience feelings of anxiety from time-to-time can function and live a relatively normal life.
People who experience chronic anxiety and anxiety disorders struggle on a daily basis because of both the physical sensations/ailments + mental chatter they have to deal with. It’s not only debilitating, but exhausting for them.
When it comes to chronic anxiety, there’s a strong correlation with intergenerational trauma, environmental factors, childhood, and upbringing.
For me, chronic anxiety was a direct result of being brought up in an environment with domestic violence + alcoholism, being abandoned by my father as a child, and carrying the energetic imprint from family lineage (i.e. my grandparents experiencing war and political injustice in Croatia).
These things put my nervous system in a state of dysregulation, creating a patterned flight trauma response, which resulted in chronic anxiety that I started to experience from a very young age.
However, as I’ve learned, you don’t have to suffer from chronic anxiety for the rest of your life.
Taking medications can alleviate some of the symptoms of chronic anxiety, but it doesn’t stop the root cause of the patterned stress response.
Through my own personal journey and understanding of the mind-body connection and human consciousness, I’ve been able to weaken these patterned stress responses and start breaking the cycle of chronic anxiety carried through family lineage.
I no longer experience anxiety chronically and have a better awareness of my nervous system, knowing how I feel and where it stems from. This has helped me minimise the extent of the anxiety I feel + releasing and allowing energy to flow through my body without attachment.
