HOW CAN YOU KNOW IF IT’S ANXIETY OR IF IT’S INTUITION?

Anxiety: combo of fear, worry, and the actual feeling state of anxiety. It can be worry which is future oriented thoughts resistant to uncertainty and ambiguity. It can be fear, actual fear of imminent threat. It can be the feeling state of anxiety which is physiological arousal like difficulty breathing or sensations of tightness.

Intuition: It’s a deep sense. A knowing. Impressions. Clarity. 6th sense. Even when related to fear or warning, intuition is more calm and grounded. It’s resolve. It’s in your gut. It’s typically relieving instead of panic inducing.

How do I know this? I don’t. It’s a hypothesis like every single thing I say. I’m not my ideas, but I have ideas. This one is from my intuition, job experience, and personal lived experience. Most of my counseling hacks are simply my observations of patterns mixed with my personal anxiety and intuition. I guess I throw in some psych facts and theory too. ⠀

 

Therapy and tacos for all,
