Struggling With Anxiety?

A few months ago, I did an Instagram Live on anxiety where I talked about what to say to someone who struggles with anxiety.

In that video, I opened up about walking with Jesse through his anxiety and the lessons that I’ve learned through it. After I did that video, I got a lot of feedback and followup questions and some requests for us to do a podcast dedicated to the topic.

I asked Jesse if he’d be willing to record a podcast episode with me on the topic — and he said yes!

Don’t miss this week’s really honest episode on anxiety. Jesse shares candidly about all the sleepless nights and doctor’s visits and tests he’s had and what has helped him to process through his anxiety and not live life paralyzed in fear.

If you’ve ever battled anxiety or you are close to someone who does, I hope Jesse’s story and honesty will really encourage you.

In This Episode:

[00:26] – Welcome back to the Traveling Diaries of the Paine family! I start by giving some life updates and sharing some funny . and rather crazy stories from the past few days.

[12:05] – Today, Jesse is opening up about his struggles with anxiety. His anxiety has manifested itself through fear of storms, health-related anxiety, and travel anxiety. We talk about how some of this was likely related to trauma from his childhood.

[21:56] – What do you say to someone who is struggling with anxiety? It was hard to know how to respond when Jesse would spin out with health-related stress. Should I have compassion or should I tell him it’s anxiety? We’ve spent a lot of money on health-related tests and Jesse has spent hours upon hours and sleepless nights Googling his health conditions.

[26:48] – We chat about what not to say to someone with anxiety and how you need to address the root of the anxiety, not just the surface manifestation. Also, Jesse shares what has helped him stop being so controlled by anxiety. It’s simple, but it’s made such a difference. 

[36:12] – Not all anxiety is created equal! Make sure to treat your anxiety holistically.

[39:58] – Acknowledging and healing our own anxiety has helped us to better parent by recognizing anxiety triggers and giving our kids the space to express their emotions and feelings.
