From article Confession: Anxiety Cause Revealed, by Jen Crippen.
Why is it that when we know our limit on something and if we go beyond that, we’ll feel like “junk”?
For example, I experience many food sensitivities. I can indulge in a TINY bit of dark chocolate. Key word: TINY (two 1? X 1? squares). Any more than that it is the OPPOSITE of anxiety therapy! It is an anxiety cause.
However, I know when I should stop. Then, I go back for a few pieces more. “Just a few more tiny squares, I’ll be fine.” Those few pieces take me from feeling grounded to jittery, racy, and anxious.
