Defeat Anxiety

I think that anxiety is something that is in your mind. For example, we have complete control over our mind. So if we have control over our mind then we have control over the things that are injected into our mind. So if I think that I am having an anxiety attack then I will calm down and realize that I have control over my mind and I can choose to put any thought that I want in it.
