Episode 299: Overcoming Victim Mentality & Cognitive vs Physical Anxiety

Hello, friends! I hope you’ve had a really good week. My week here has been pretty good. As I mention in the episode, I didn’t really plan anything good for the 300th episode of the show, BUT I wanted to open things up to you all. If you have written in a question or heard a question from the show that caused you to make a change in your life or there is a follow up story to your original question, I’d love to hear it. Shoot me an email to duffthepsych@gmail.com!

Anyways, here are the questions that I cover in this episode:

  • Why did nobody tell me that there is mind-based and body-based anxiety?
  • I have experienced a lot of mistreatment and discrimination in my life. This has led to a victim mentality. How do I get myself out of the victim mentality and start taking ownership of my life?

As always, you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and you can find the show notes at http://duffthepsych.com/episode299
