One of the things about anxiety is that we can become scared of uncertainty.
We want to KNOW what’s going to happen so we can plan for any contingency – we need our surroundings to be reliable and just so in order that we can have any chance of relaxing.
The result? We turn into control freaks.

This is taken from the Little Peace of Mind Core Program and here’s where I started to see something more deeply true that impacted on my ability to get comfortable with the uncertainties of life.
