Hi ladies,

Has anxiety about looks ever held you back from doing something you wanted to do? How did you overcome that?

I never really overcame it, I don't think.  I just worry about it less now that I'm older.

When I have anxiety about something its usually cause I don't know all the facts once I can have a clear picture of it in my head it goes away. And when its something I can't find out all the facts about it I try not to think about its just stress I don't need.

Sometimes I have anxiety when I ride with other people. I get so nervous and sometimes end up driving myself.

I dont honestly...lol!

I have terrible anxiety at times and then I'm more normal than anyone I know. I think many situations that create my anxiety are over the kids or finances and they just can;t be avoided. You overcome them because you have no choice honestly!

and then there are always meds!

 I don't think it has stopped me but it has made me feel less confident when others have better haircuts or more expensive clothes.

I haven't had much issues with looks, however when I do face anxiety, I try to take a moment to stop, breath and pray about it. It helps greatly.

I don't really have it about looks, but for general anxiety I pray, that always helps.

It used too....

But lately, I have gotten to the age where I just don't care!
