Is An Undercurrent of Anxiety Stopping You From Moving Forward in Life? – by Chris Cade

What I would have done for a glimpse into a crystal ball. Just a peek into the future.

The worst experience of my entire life was underway in the fall of 2011. It could easily have concluded in the unspeakable. When I say “unspeakable,” what I really mean is that other than death or severe illness, what happened to me was worse than the worst thing I could have imagined… and it could have been even worse than that.

I was “fortunate” I guess you could say. And I’d tell you more, but it would compromise multiple people’s privacy and safety. Someday, I may write a book about it.

My main point is this…

No matter where I went, or what I did, this undercurrent of fear, doubt and anxiety tugged at me. Work I normally found easy to do became begrudgingly difficult. Falling asleep at night became a challenge. Staying asleep was an even greater challenge. It was only when I could “concentrate” on a distraction or diversion that I’d experience any freedom. And that freedom was always disappointingly short-lived.

Otherwise, I was constantly aware of that undercurrent of uncertainty and anxiety.

Normally, I’m a very peaceful and calm guy. I’m not the Buddha, but I’m not one to overreact. I’ve lost my job. Gone through a divorce. Foreclosed on my house. I’ve stood bedside while my brother’s last breaths passed from his body when he died from cancer.

NONE of it has shaken me to the core like this period of my life did.

Perhaps you know what I mean… Have months (or even years) past while you lived with a constant feeling of uneasiness?

A feeling like you’re going to lose something you can’t live without?

Like you may suddenly be thrown into an even more painful experience?
