9.23.10

what really marked my recovery, I think

was when I was able to move from

“I’m so scared to sit in this room/go to class/travel/eat: what if I get sick? What if everyone sees how anxious I am?”

to

“I see that I’m feeling a lot of anxiety right now. What can I do to change that?”

In other words, I stopped identifying totally with a transient physical/emotional state.

(: the feeling-response, the experience, is not the same as what is.)

what does this feeling want from me?”
