    Hi your number eight “Just don’t let these negative thoughts give you trouble.” is the worst anxiety advice I have ever seen and makes me question if you even understand anxiety. I understand you are trying to help people but I have been told this a lot with my anxiety and it only makes it worse. Someone experiencing anxiety and trying to not be affected by negative thoughts is going to lead to disappointment and a snowball affect of greater and greater anxiety. Feeling is important and pushing negative thoughts to the side only creates a snowball effect later on. There is not a magic off switch to stop anxiety, and there is no way to just decide that negative thoughts won’t influence you. Examples of things that actually help with anxiety:
    -breathing exercises
    -positive thoughts
    -going outside
    -fun easy hobbies
    -listening to music
    -petting a dog
    Instead of trying to “not let negative thoughts affect you” you should acknowledge negative thoughts. Then try and tear down that negative thought with logic, and turn it into a possitive

      Totally agree. Also everyone can experience anxiety to a certain degree but when it’s a deep anxiety that affects you constantly, then as you say, you can’t just push it aside.
