Finding Other Voices

worry games

One of the things that starting this project is doing for me is helping me find the other people who are writing about anxiety in a way I can relate to. It's so great that we have tools to be able to connect with each other. I found the work of Lisa Scott aka TheWorryGames.com through Twitter. (If you're on Twitter, you should be following her @TheWorryGames as well, of course, as Beautiful Voyager @nervesbegone.)

Here's an interview that Lisa did with Like-Minded Magazine, an online interview magazine founded in Amsterdam. Three of my favorite quotes from her interview:

"You gotta have a sense of humor if you have anxiety. A lot of it really is ridiculous and its okay to acknowledge that and have a laugh every now and then."

"I have trained myself to be an optimistic pessimist."

"I never would have been motivated to change the way I was living w/o the extreme discomfort & fear anxiety gave me."

I had posted this on the The Beautiful Voyager Facebook page, and then realized that there are people who come here who never see that. So I wanted it to be here too. Lisa's good words deserve to be heard!
