The Constant Creeping of ANTs Will Wear Away the Stone

"The constant creeping of ANTs will wear away the stone." This old saying of unknown origin speaks to the incredible impact of even the smallest insects, over time, on the hardest surface.

Sadly, this is also true of our ANTs, those Automatic Negative Thoughts that constantly wear away at even the most confident self and contribute to challenges such as depression, social anxiety, and stress, anxiety and worry.

Overcoming Social Anxiety was HARD, but it changed my life…

Hi fellow social anxiety fighters! I’m Heidi. I’m 24 and I live in Milwaukee. I’ve dealt with social anxiety my entire life. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t feel nervous about something. My anxiety has focused around food mostly; whether people were monitoring what I was eating, whether people would judge me for what I ordered, whether something would be too expensive, you get the idea.
