The Greek Meaning of Anxiety is Pretty Trich
The topic of anxiety was brought up in a book I’m reading for school.
I read that the word Anxiety, in the Greek, means dividing and fracturing a person’s being into parts.
So literally, you’re PULLING yourself into parts when you have anxiety.
Let that sink in.
When I see the origin of a word like anxiety and it refers to PULLING yourself apart, my brain stays camped there for awhile.
How about yours?
It’s as though one part of you is here and the other part somewhere else trying to solve the worry of the future?
Most of my anxiety is about things in the future, most of which doesn’t even happen.
I’m totally aware of this.
I think its important to be aware, its one of the reasons I want to blog through this.
I absolutely know that Trichotillomania is so much deeper than your every day surface stress.
It’s much deeper.
During the day I feel okay for the most part, it’s at night that the pulling and the nightmares start.
My subconscious is alive and anxious.
One of the reasons I go to Bible school is to understand (to the best of my pea brain ability) the love and grace of God.
It’s NOT so I can be all puffed up in my own wisdom.
I know God loves me.
I know His word is Truth.
But somewhere the connection in my brain isn’t being made.
I go to hair pulling to relieve anxiety that shouldn’t be there.
…. I literally start pulling myself apart physically.
Pretty interesting when you know the Greek meaning of anxiety and you battle Trichotillomania.
I’m battling to stop pulling myself apart… literally!
