Passive aggressiveness is insidious and it has little respect for your thoughts on it.
ou can't overcome anxiety, addiction or depression without allowing yourself to, first, go outside of the box... a bunch. People often emotionally limp into my office and look at me as if I have all the answers, thinking I have some magic word/pill that will set them on their feet again - without their effort.
If you're trapped with dibilitating anxiety/panic right now, tell somebody. Don't hold it in. In fact, when you share this with others, you disarm anxiety's strength in your life.
