What do you do if your anxiety was correct about something?
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Get the heck out of there
acknowledge that you were right but still take yourself with a grain of salt.
Remind myself a broken clock is still right twice a day, and just because I was right about something, doesn't mean I should have faith every time warning vells go off in my head. I try to logic it when iy comes to my anxiety kicking in to determine if it could be legit or not.
Sometimes impossible, even if I know I'm not going to lose my job for instance, it doesn't mean I don't feel like I am secure in my position no matter how much I logic it... but it still helps a little.
In my experience Anxiety tends to tell you every single bad thing that *could* happen in your life and occasionally bad things do happen and your anxiety predicted something correctly but that does not mean you should listen to every bad thing anxiety tells you is going to Happen, because it tells you every situation will end in the worst case scenario. Sometimes things do end up in the worst case scenario but most of the time they do not actually end up that way. Remind yourself of all of the times your anxiety was wrong about something and realize that that probably happens more often than it was right, but also get out of whatever situation affirmed your anxiety for you because that’s never a good sign. But don’t let anxiety tell you it’s always right because it was right this time
The bad thoughts anxiety causes are like throwing darts while blindfolded and spun around. Eventually There might be one that makes it on the board but most of them probably won’t
