Overcoming Anxiety-How To Cope
OVERCOMING ANXIETY - HOW TO COPE
Feeling anxious late at night
As i leave the train station
Was that guy staring at me
Or is it just my imagination.
Don't want to come across as paranoid
Or as if i'm running scared
But if there's anyone in the shadows
I want to be prepared.
Walking home in the darkness
I'm certain i'm the only one on this street
But i'm sure beneath the sound of my own steps
I can hear somebody else's feet.
A car full of people appears
Draws up to me as it stops to park
The driver calls me over
And sits there in the dark.
I approached the car
And was feeling very wary
This was a scene
That could become quite scary.
They were just after directions
So that was okay
I helped them out
And they were on their way.
I knew that i had to get a reality check
Or i would scare myself to death
The best thing i knew to get rid of this anxiety
Was to start by taking a deep breath.
A few more deep breaths
And i'm feeling very calm
Now the only thing giving me away
Is the sweat on my palm.
I'm now approaching my house
So i'm feeling a good bit more bolder
But just to reassure myself
I take one last look over my shoulder.
