Self ❤️ Series: I see you, I feel you…

I choose to not be you… (learned from the Calm Meditation app) This is my new mantra when anxiety hits, and I must say, it has been very helpful.  Just because certain unpleasant  emotions grab a hold of you, it does not mean you have to “be” that emotion.  We can see it, feel it and still not “liveContinue reading “Self ❤️ Series: I see you, I feel you…”
