"Well...I'm sorry, but I don't trust you or anyone else!" "If you had been through what I've been through, you wouldn't trust anyone either!" Another's comments, "I know...I give way too much trust, too quickly, to too many people! And then I just hope and pray I don't get burned!" Any of this sound familiar?? Join as Dr. Dodd looks at the essential ingredient of trust, from three different perspectives, and discusses why trustworthiness is so foundational to every relationship!
Are you kidding me?! Everything has to be done your way! You never listen to me! I'm always wrong and you think you're always right! Even when you're wrong, you're right! If I don't do it, just the way you think I should...I get all kinds of grief!
Well...I'd rather just do it myself, that way I know it's done right! It's just easier for me to do it than have to tell you how! WOW! Have you ever thought, said, or been on the receiving end of those kinds of statements??

It's everywhere today. The stress of 2020 has created so much worry, fear, and anxiety. It's so important to make a distinction between them, in order to address them effectively.
First Dr. Dodd looks at: Worry. Unwarranted fear or worry is always based on something in our imagination or our memory. It is the fear that we manufacture...in other words, it's a choice.
Then: Fear. In general, fear is a reaction to something very specific...an observable danger. Fear can make us "run for cover."
And finally: Anxiety. Whereas fear relates to a known or understood threat, anxiety is a result of an unknown or poorly defined threat. Being anxious about all the "unknowns."
Join Dr. Dodd as he shares some very practical tips on how to address each of them.
