THE SOLUTION TO ANXIETY DOESN'T LIE IN A "LABEL" <3
Both my client and I were traumatized by the system... I was traumatized through the use of the label "Social Anxiety"... One of my clients was traumatized through the use of the label "Agoraphobia"...
The "Exposure Therapy" my client received was probably some of the worst abuse I have ever heard of... even worse than mine. :(
This week, I said the phrase "Overcome your Agoraphobia", and my client said to me, "Do you think we could not use that word? I have received so much abuse from people using that word."
Tears came into my eyes... "Of Course!"
After all, I finally overcame my crippling Social Anxiety by REFUSING to say the label at all.
I told her that we never need to say that label ever again. <3
If you have received the "Abuse of the Label", you are not alone.
This label does NOT define you.
This label is only a description of your "secondary" symptoms... not even the primary problem.
You are wonderful just the way you are. And the solution lies in embracing your wonderful self... It doesn't lie in the label.
If you would like me to help you overcome your anxiety in the "non-label way" that I overcame mine... send me a message. I would love to talk.
