Life is too overwhelming and difficult. We moved into our new house this past April. However, I still drive to our old neighborhood to go shopping. For example, I drive to our old cross-streets for grocery shopping. There are many grocery stores that are closer, but I’m comfortable shopping at my old store. I prefer to drive and feel safe, than shop somewhere closer to home and be anxious and afraid.

I also continue to go to a salon that’s in my old neighborhood. I only go there to get my eyebrows waxed. It may be farther away, but I feel secure and happy when I go there. I looked around my new community and found a lot of places that I could go to get my eyebrows waxed. I even found two that are just on the corner, but still I choose to go somewhere familiar and pleasurable.

  1. Maybe you could go to a new salon with a friend for a “spa day” or go grocery shopping with someone you know in your new neighborhood. Once you’ve done something it becomes familiar and easier to do again. It won’t happen overnight, but if you want to, you can do it. And if you don’t want to change, you can keep going to the other places.

  2. I detest going shopping of any sort as it makes me horribly anxious but I too go to only one store and get my nails done at the place right next to it not because it’s comfortable but because I’m developing a huge fear of driving.
