I’ve said before on this blog that I’m a naturally anxious person. Most people who live with anxiety talk about “living with” anxiety, like it’s a cross to bear.

by Maud Millar on November 19, 2018

Anxiety. It’s a thing we all struggle with from time to time. In some ways, anxiety can be productive, even useful.
