“No, Michael, it’s not a problem.”
You might think that’s horrible advice, that it’s invalidating to someone with a real problem.
Let me tell you a story:
One day, I had anxiety and it sucked.
I sat down to meditate and a weird thing happened. I suddenly didn’t mind the anxiety…it felt neutral, not bad. However, I saw trying to get rid of the anxiety was STRESSING ME OUT.
This was a huge relief, as then I could stop making things worse.
If you want the relief of not making things worse, you should be meditating.
No Problem will get you started.
Enjoy your new life where you’re no longer making it worse.
P.S. I got the advice from a teacher on a meditation retreat. I was freaking out because I was seeing weird stuff when I closed my eyes and thought I would never be able to sleep ever again.
