Stop Saying I'm Fine
Stop Saying I'm Fine: Finding Stillness When Anxiety Screams
by Taylor Joy Murray
What if "I'm fine" is the language that the wounded heart speaks?
Many of us have become experts at pretending we're fine. Our shiny social media feeds and skin-deep smiles certainly give off a happy illusion. But we are not fine. Taylor has heard countless stories from her generation of our fetal positions on cold tile floors, immobilized by anxiety. She personally knows this place well. At 18, she, too, found herself in an anxiety-induced fetal position behind a locked bathroom stall, wondering, "What did Jesus mean when He promised me full life?"
Stop Saying I'm Fine is a generational call to honesty, healing and a spiritual hunger that defies superficial Christianity. We'll dig beneath the bedrock of our anxiety into the pain of our experiences, and together we'll learn how to connect to the stillness that exists beneath the chaos, finding that the wholeness and healing we long for isn't as distant as it may seem.
- For the young adult who feels trapped inside their anxiety.
- For the parent or caregiver who aches to understand.
- For the wounded heart that can't seem to move on.
- For the weary one who has tried and failed a thousand other ways.
