My Journey With Toilet Anxiety - With 5 Helpful Tips!
Today I'm doing something that I often tell you to do, and that's to be courageous. So today I’m talking about something that I hid from everyone for years - toilet anxiety! And I’m talking, I even hid this fear from my safe people (my mom and my husband and even my therapist) for years. And honestly, I never thought I’d share this stuff with the people I’m closest with, never mind on a podcast episode with thousands of people, but I want to, because I know that there are lots of people who are struggling with toilet anxiety and I know how absolutely debilitating this fear is.
And if you hit play on this episode because you are currently struggling with toilet anxiety, I’m so glad that you’re listening to this because I don’t want you to continue to feel alone or crazy. And I don’t want you to continue to carry a whole ton of shame and embarrassment around with you every day. I don’t want you to feel like you have to keep this fear a secret. I don’t want you to feel like if you tell people that you have this fear, they’re going to think any less of you, or completely abandon you. Instead, I want you to absolutely feel and absolutely know that you aren’t alone. I want you to start letting go of some of the shame and embarrassment you’re carrying around. I want you to share this fear, without believing that the people you love will think any less of you or walk away from you. I want you to feel and know that this fear doesn’t have to continue to control you, and that you can find freedom from it. And right now, I know that you probably feel like this fear is going to be with you for the rest of your life, but it doesn’t have to be. This is absolutely something that you can overcome.
