    “For any person who has ever tried to meditate, the answer is unfortunately all too clear. Because meditating doesn’t force a person to be fully present — that is to say we can attempt meditation while the mid wanders, and it is up to us to bring our attention back — for many sufferers of anxiety, the experience itself may be more frustrating than it is helpful.”

    THANK YOU. This is the first I’ve read that meditation can actually be frustrating. I deal with PTSD and anxiety, and have been “encouraged” for years to meditate, but each attempt to do so has brought out nothing but frustration and self-hatred. I even took two meditation courses to learn how to meditate, but still no luck! It makes sense now WHY it’s been so frustrating for me. Thank you for this article!
