If I listen to it enough, it crushes me. But if I turn my head and keep doing what I’m doing – let it speak to me, but don’t give it the credit it needs – then it shrinks down and fades away.” Emma explained that she was really anxious as a child and had many panic attacks. At age seven she started seeing therapists and Emma said it helped her a lot. Emma shares she still has anxiety now but doesn’t have panic attacks.
