I would get a job (something in the arts or healthcare or something....??) make friends, go to yoga and dance classes, maybe even find a partner (atleast I would date!) Meet new people, speak my mind, drive, have a family, take some classes (maybe languages and other things) volunteer, have my own house, travel, write my books, etc etc pretty much ever single thing I'm not doing now. emoticon

But.... I'm getting there! Slowly, but surely.

Also this is my first post - here, and on the site in general. Hi. *waves* emoticon

Kinda pissed about not being a mermaid, but I am a Pisces, and that's kinda the same thing.

The day I decided that my life was magical, there was suddenly magic all around me.

Thank you HLTHAPPINESS4C! I'm taking my time working through the workbook. But I'll share what I can. It certainly brings up painful times but I know it is necessary to be able to heal properly. Anxieties and depression is challenging to work through on your own but this workbook makes me feel I'm not so alone. My husband is very supportive but the type of anxiety I deal with... weighs very heavy on our relationship. Counselling didn't work so well for me. I've been to many and all said I'm beyond their expertise. So I resorted into helping myself with many kinds of self therapy.

Monica~ I really am glad you are finding a book that is helpful and enjoyable. Perhaps with time, one baby step at a time you will be able to do some of the many things you would love to do. You have great aspirations and I hope that one day you will be able to travel, go to school and meet new friends.

I had to leave school, because my anxiety was so intense. I am hoping that one day I will be able to go back.

Let us know more about the book as you work further into it.

If I didn't have so much anxiety I would...


live life to the fullest! I would do the things I wanted and not be so concerned of what others thought of it. I would be confident in all my decision making and choices without the fear of judgement, criticism, or scrutiny. I would like to think, I would attend all invites and enjoy every moment of the socializing and company of others and maybe make some new friends on the way. Travel with my husband with good intentions to have a great time and experience new adventures and meet some interesting people from different cultural backgrounds. Be ready to change careers and go back to school and be confident knowing that no matter what your age... you are never too old to go back to school and learn something new. Go to parties with my husband and play card or board games with the thoughts of having a great fun time hanging out with friends. Go to dinner and dances and have a great time with my husband dancing the night away and loving every moment of it.


I would love to have a life without anxieties!! I'm missing out on so much of a good life!!


I am working on a workbook called Mindfulness and Acceptance for Shyness and Social Anxieties. I've started it a few days ago... and am liking it.

Just Get Started!

Jen~ What kind of things would you like to be doing with your family?

Jazzy~ What kind of things make you happy? Loving yourself is important. Can you think of one positive thing about yourself? I am sure you have many great attributes.

If I didn't have anxiety I think I would be better at being assertive and telling people no when I don't want to do things instead of stammering, giving excuses or just giving in and doing it anyway.

You fill in the blank. Dream big. What do imagine life would be like if you didn't have a lot of anxiety hovering around you. What type of things would you like to be doing? What do you enjoy but haven't done in a long time because of anxiety.

I am not necessarily asking this as a way to look at our anxiety negatively. (However do feel free to vent frustrations about what you feel anxiety has stolen from you) I am asking because I suspect that many of us have dreams that we've long ago put up on a shelf or believe we just can't do them. I'm hoping we can reignite our emoticon sparkle of life and dare to dream again and perhaps even encourage each other to follow those dreams. Together we can find support and help each other find Hope.

Enjoy Posting! Looking forward to hearing from ya!

So I will go first.

If I didn't have so much anxiety, I wouldn't worry so much about what people think of me and I would be more willing to try new things. (* oh yeah and I wouldn't worry about getting hurt)
