I experience anxiety. I have my entire life.
I used to say that I “suffer” from anxiety and this verb choice had that effect – it made me suffer. One day, I decided to change my language and see if my body, mind and soul would follow. I will share how my rejection of the word “suffer” shaped a new way of living that I never dreamed was possible.
I will illustrate how the power of language creates our realities and challenge you to see how terminology used to describe aging, such as “suffering,” “incapable,” and “disabled,” is creating a system that inspires just that.
