One of the hardest things about having anxiety is that people confuse it with just being "worried", "nervous" or "sensitive", and therefore make annoying, dismissive, judgmental comments like ...

“Just stop overthinking everything.”

“Everybody gets nervous or worried sometimes.”

“Just snap out of it.”

“It’s all in your head.”

“Don’t be so sensitive.”

“You’re so overdramatic.”

“Just do _______ and you’ll feel better.”

“Just relax.”

“Stop making excuses.”

“You’re just faking it"

“You’re just having a bad day.”

“You don’t have anything to be anxious about – you’ve got a great life!”

“You’re getting stressed out and worried for no reason at all.”

“Just stop thinking about it.”

“You really need to calm down.”

“You’re just looking for attention.”

Hi, my name's Mathew Baker - I'm a professional counsellor & the co-founder of The Depression Project - and if you struggle with anxiety, then I'm guessing you've heard some or all of these comments before.

Of course, I know how frustrating this can be for you, so to help you out, I wrote this book to make it much, much easier for you to explain your anxiety to your loved ones - so that instead of having to keep hearing these comments, you can instead get the understanding and support that you deserve.

So that you know exactly what to expect, below is a section-by-section breakdown of what this book covers.

Section 1

Your Very Own "Anxiety Letter"

Because anxiety is so difficult to put into words, I’ve done it for you – by drafting a letter on your behalf that explains to your loved ones exactly what anxiety feels like, as well as some of the ways they can support you through it.

You’re welcome to edit this letter in any way you like to make it as applicable to you as possible, and even if you don’t want to actually give it to your loved ones (for example, because you’d rather communicate with them face-to-face), then you’ll still find this letter an extremely useful resource to help you explain your anxiety.

Section 2

How To Handle Your Loved Ones' Response

Using your "anxiety letter" will significantly reduce the chances of your loved ones saying something annoying about your anxiety like "just get over it", for example. But, in case they still do, I'm going to show you how to respond to all of the annoying comments people most commonly make – in such a way that it maximises the chance of them finally “getting it”.

Section 3

How To Make Your Loved Ones Understand Exactly How You Feel In Any Given Moment

Even once your loved ones understand anxiety better, it may still be hard for them to support you, since anxiety can be different things at different times – for example, overwhelming fear one day; feeling OK the next day; staying in bed and hiding from the world the day after that; going out and keeping really busy to distract yourself from your anxiety the following day; etcetera. And, when anxiety can be so many different things, it can be hard for your loved ones to know how you’re feeling at any given moment – and therefore, how best to support you.

So, to overcome this problem, I'm going to show you how to use the Storm To Sun Framework to easily express exactly how you feel at any given moment!

Section 4

Conquering Any Further Concerns You May Have Regarding Opening Up About Your Anxiety

Everything that's covered in Sections 1, 2 and 3 will make you feel significantly more comfortable opening up and talking about your anxiety. However, you may still have a few fears, worries or concerns that are holding you back from doing so, and in the last section of this book, I'm going to help you overcome the most common ones that you're likely to have.
