I remember a time when I wanted to hide the fact that I have generalized anxiety disorder, and now I want to call it out. I realize in leaning into what ever is, even in the midst of high anxiety, that my suffering lies in my attachment to the story I give it. The practice of meditation helps me build and cultivate present moment awareness. It is in the here and now that I am free. Pain is inevitable and will pass. Suffering is a choice.
