      In a weird quirk of fate, gaining reassurance, can actually feed the urge to seek it more. When someone makes us feel worse, by not giving the answer we so desperately need, we seek from others more. What I found really strange is, when someone reassures me to the positive… Do I find that I believe them? Could they be wrong? Sometimes it easier to wait out the anxiety, and wait for it to subside on it’s own. It does happen! It may be replaced by another concern, but, eventually, the concerns are replaced by a sense of freedom… And when it happens, and it will, it’s brilliant!
