There's nothing worse than thinking, 'Here I am, and nothing more is going to happen to me.' The brain keeps developing and learning. I think everybody benefits from that
Anxiety is a mental health condition, and its exact causes are incredibly complex.
One of the first things you learn from God is that you need to be responsible for the choices you make in this world. That means that if you suffer from anxiety, you need to be willing to commit to recovery.
It says time and time again in the bible that God is love, and God wants us to find that level of happiness and contentment that allows us to be good people, and contribute to the love that we're supposed to share with God.
Anxiety prevents happiness, energy, and in some cases it can try to prevent faith.
"Don't be afraid, for I am with you." Isaiah, 41:10
Fear is specifically addressed in the bible multiple times. The bible explains that God always has a plan, and those that truly believe that anything that happens is God's will shouldn't experience the same fear, especially when not in danger. Fear is a natural human emotion, but those that experience fear when no fear is present are likely struggling to believe in God's plan, or trusting in the ultimate outcome.
Not all fear is bad. In fact, a little fear serves as an insurance policy. "Without fear, we'd jump headlong into things we shouldn't!
Some fear is evolutionary in nature.
Success depends on you!
