Can you get anxious about being NOT anxious
Anxiety is a bodily state that protects you from threat (it is the fight or flight response.)
If you have experienced trauma, chronic stress and adversity for a long time.
Your body learns to stay in this nervous state as a way to PROTECT you.
If this nervous state goes away, you feel vulnerable.
So stillness, calm and feeling centered can actually create MORE anxiety.
Because your body is scared of letting go of the protective mechanism that it has always relied on.
