I don’t know about you, but as a woman, I struggle a lot with anxiety.
We’re told as moms that it is normal to worry about our kids, and that we’ll worry about them the rest of our lives. But does it really have to be this way?
I think that as women, we are more prone to anxiety because everything in our lives is tied together.
Our thought processes and emotions combine to drive us to constantly think of “what if….” while we envision every scenario—each one more horrifying than the one before.
Combine that with hormonal changes and undernourishment, often led by calorie-restricted dieting (which can lead to even greater hormone disregulation), and we have a recipe for chronic anxiety and depression.
God never intended for us to live in anxiety and drama.
