An Inside Job asks us to have a look at the anxiety epidemic on the earth from a different perspective and invites a new conversation for a powerful solution. Until now, the anxiety cure has been sought in the outside world. Governments and corporations will have to fix the danger in the market on the earth and rescue us from insecurity and worry.
Closer to home we’ve looked to other circumstances and people to blame for our feelings of anger, fear, distrust and pain: bosses, spouses, friends and those different from us. We numb ourselves looking for anxiety relief by escaping into wine and carbs or ill-fated attempts to regulate the things and people around us.
The fight/flight response that meant life or death survival for our ancestors now means anxiety disorders filled with sleepless nights, Prozac, web surfing, painful relationships and trying to have it all even as we do it all.
We look outside of ourselves for solutions – other people, medicine, distractions – even as if truth be told, it’s an inside job. An Inside Job demonstrates that it’s lack of love and respect that cause us this deep distress.
Bethany Eaton says anxiety no more and offers 5 steps for learning to love ourselves again. Self-love creates the capacity for empathy, compassion and love to drift out into the world. It then dominoes out to those around us, the policies we make at the family, work, community, government and corporate levels. It heals the anxious suffering on the earth. An Inside Job will allow you to create more peace and joy in your life even as calming your anxiety panic.
