I think this thread would be far more powerful if the AA was relabeled, like Rye does in his thread. Your still presupposing its a negative emotion, which won't give those labeling it as such the tools to over come.
But cool thread, disregarding that.
Yeah Chief, snag 'em with the AA in the topic title and then reframe their minds by using Approach Excitement (AE) in the topic!
My intention is to actually hit a deeper chord by helping people realize that they must welcome negative emotion if they want to ever feel positive emotion, like welcoming ALL emotions like they are welcoming air into their lungs as they breathe.
In short, to SBAP and man up by taking the bad with the good. If men did that, it wouldn't matter if anything was labeled as whatever. They'd just start living and appreciating life for what it is.
"Approach Anxiety" essentially stems from the prediction of negative consequences to come. If they welcome the possibility of such a challenge in their life, the only possible consequences become:
1. Grow, or
And, IMO, option 1 is far more beneficial. Some people may interpret this Fight-Clubesque philosophy as masochistic, but I see it more like making a financial investment that you can't possibly lose any money in.
