Thinking of taking Celexa for anxiety?
Many people do. Sometimes it helps. For a while. But it never deals with the underlying problem.
Your anxiety is feedback. It’s a message, telling you something’s wrong. Just like the little red warning light on your dashboard. When you put a piece of duct tape over the red light, have you really solved the problem?
Some people would say so. But anxiety is a living energy. Your anxiety is a part of YOU. Anxiety is calling you. It holds a message. If you won’t listen to it’s whisper, it WILL speak louder.
Celexa may suppress the anxiety for a time, but it’s like damming a river. And all the while, pressure is building inside of you. You can ‘beat down’ the anxiety, but you can’t kill it. It’s a part of you.
The goal of taking Celexa for anxiety: to seek out, to find and destroy, to crush the anxiety. Dominate it into submission. ‘Just make it go away.’
Because there’s an ugly part of me I can’t – or won’t – look at. I don’t know myself – I don’t WANT to know myself – I just want to avoid dealing with it. I’m hurting and I don’t know why. Don’t make me look at myself. Let me take this pill – Celexa – and let it be responsible for my emotional health. Let Celexa deal with the part of me I’m reluctant to deal with.
You see what’s wrong with this picture? You’re giving your power away to a pill. You’re taking your power and giving it to Celexa. Now, if you truly honestly believe Celexa will help, here’s one way to do it perhaps a little more effectively:
Okay, my anxiety is SO bad, I need help. I’m at the end of my rope and I don’t know what to do. So I’m asking Celexa to help me.
Why not create an ALLIANCE with Celexa? Make Celexa your ally, instead of trying to make it your savior.
See the difference?
Rather than giving all your power – all your responsibility – over to Celexa… instead you can use it as a tool. You don’t give your power to a hammer when you want to pound a nail. You retain your power.
When Celexa is your savior, you do nothing to deal with your anxiety yourself. When Celexa is your ally, then you’re also going to do everything in your power to be personally responsible for your current state of anxiety.
How? By understanding – MY anxiety is a part of ME. Therefore, it MUST have value, because I have value.
I will seek to know myself more. I will seek to know my anxiety more. I will seek the MESSAGE behind my anxiety. I will accept my anxiety.
Not by ‘going limp’. But as a warrior accepts. As an adult accepts.
If you want to change, you need to know where you are right now. Clearly… cleanly… perceive. Know where you’re standing, so you’ll know which direction to face to get to where you want to go.
I have anxiety. It hurts. But I’m going to love myself anyway. I’m going to be responsible for my anxiety. I know Celexa cannot be my savior. But Celexa can be one part of a multi-faceted approach to healing. If I’m really hurting so bad I can’t function… maybe Celexa can give me a little breathing room so I can become more responsible.
Now, how CAN I be more responsible here?
It starts with VALUING your thoughts and feelings. They’re the source of your power. It starts with changing your relationship with your thoughts and feelings. That’s the key to responsibility. It’s also the key to happiness and health and so much more.
Value your thoughts and feelings. Stand on that foundation. Whole new worlds will open up for you.
It’s also important to understand the underlying causes that would lead someone to such a painful place.
I almost feel guilty because my life has become so enjoyable and so easy. Especially since I remember how miserable I used to be.
Basically it comes down to making one slight shift in what you do everyday, and you can watch in amazement as your life slowly begins to start working out in almost every way.
