Listen: Most often anxiety doesn’t make sense. It can come out of no-where and catastrophize in your mind. Often the role of a therapist is to listen and help make sense of the struggle. Yes, therapy is a wonderful tool and I would recommend it to everyone, AND it is important for us to be mindful of those around us who might be struggling and engage their anxiety by listening. Listening is just that, hearing the words that are coming out of their mouths, asking questions to help understand where they are coming from, exploring their emotions, and just being with them (virtually of course).
