I'm sure many of you can relate to "free floating anxiety," a sort of low level buzz of anxiety not attached to any particular worry.
I often get sort of the opposite of that: I'll be feeling pretty positive, and then I'll stop and let my brain "focus," and it always remembers something that I "should" be worrying about. Boom. Dread.
This week, I've been wandering around with free floating anxiety instead. Several times I've stopped to get that "anxiety focus" and found that there's not actually anything to be worrying about. Weird! Now I wish I could get the anxiety to go away, too.
