Correct me if wrong, but this acceptance attitude is basically understanding that nothing is wrong and the thoughts and anxiety feelings are nothing more than symptoms of stressed sensitive nerves. I leave them as is and face life with them.

I've started seeing and letting go of some of the foolish thoughts and often remind myself that my frightening thoughts/feelings are just sensitized nerves, nothing more. I've been doing a little better, going out and doing more with all the feelings there, however, recently I went through a rather stressful ordeal that has me slipping some these last few days. Bit of a setback I guess. Looking for some reassurance I guess that I'm on the right track. Thanks

After much prayer I thank the Lord that He has guided me to the Weekes book and this site. Yesterday I started to realize more about acceptance. I had the idea somehow that it was complex, but beginning to see that it's a matter of NOT FIGHTING/tensing against the anxiety feelings, no matter how awful they feel. Doing my best to let the silly anxious thoughts just go by and not adding more fear through analyzing them. I know that I'm more keyed up right now simply due to being sensitized, that's all. Nothing more to figure out! Thanks all

Now that you "know" what's needs to be done now it's time to put into practice! Please know that this isn't something they you do a few times and then your healed.. it's takes time but be kind to yourself because you're on the journey to managing your anxiety...

A section of Claire Weekes book states, "symptoms can only be intensified by further fear, not from facing and accepting." My physical feelings fluctuate quite a bit, especially with slight stresses. Is Weekes speaking of second fear here?
Doing my best to not analyze and reminding myself to see the feeling through, practice is rough and the feelings from my sensitized nerves are with me to some degree most of the time.

It's so clever too, in its own way. It seems almost like it grows smarter with bigger maces to keep me fooled and reacting. But i always doubt and think its more than it is.. what have i done, almost crying now as i see it more clearly.
