It’s easy to give up when things get difficult. I’ve done it an umpteen times. When our muscles ache with exercise after a long break. When our job application gets rejected or put on hold again and again. When no matter what we do or say, someone chooses to misunderstand us or walk away. Life’s path has its share of pebbles and thorns, but the point is to keep moving. Even when your knee bleeds. Even when you feel like crying out loud with frustration. It always looks worse before it gets better. Keep going. Don’t quit.

Anxiety can hit us anytime and anywhere. And though it may initially feel like it’s getting too much, calming techniques like breathing, walking or even talking to a friend can bring relief.
