Anxiety: My Superpower

I’ve lived with it most all of my life; anxiety since I was maybe 8 or 9. Everyday.

I thought I’d grow out of it; i prayed I’d grow out of it. Not the case.

And with more responsibilities and set-backs over the years, the anxiety becomes a more engrained part of my existence.

Lately though I’ve come to realize I can look at it, consider it in a different way, to leverage my anxiety for good. Lately I started thinking of my anxiety as a superpower.

Like Wolverine and his regenerative power or Spider-Man and his “Spider Sense”, I’m working to harness my anxiety, turn it to my advantage.

On the one hand this idea seems a bit silly: after all, I’m a middle-age dude, decades into adulthood. On the other hand, what the hell, let’s see what we can do.

This is a new idea, and I’m not sure how it’s going to go; stay tuned for more insight.
