Anxiety is closely related to fear, says port but the second one has an identifiable object, anxiety is not linked to any specific threat. It is a general feeling of concern about the future that is difficult to combat because unclear, generic, seemingly unrelated to anything in particular.

In this process of “clarification of danger” can be of great use meditation: spend some time and make space within us, let all our partners to express themselves without judgment” .
