Chen, 30, Israel

I had anxiety as far back as I can remember - I just didn’t have a name for it. As a small child I had general fear of the future, of growing up, my parents dying. It often manifested as unexplained headaches and stomach pains. I was shy and would often hide from people. From entering primary school until university, my anxieties were centered around that. I had a sense that I was failing all the time. I felt helpless and would procrastinate instead of dealing with things. I would drink, self harm or look for other ways to escape. I walked around with a sense of dread, often unable to sleep or eat properly. I had several panic attacks and doubted my ability to function.

When I first heard of New Life I knew it was for me. Everything about it sounded amazing. After just a few days I finally began to feel safe and relax. The community was so supportive, and I was amazed at the care I received from my therapists. Everyone around me was so inspiring and kind. I had the opportunity to experiment with everything from meditation retreats to working with my hands for the first time.

At New Life I learned everything I already knew: that my thoughts pass, that my feelings don’t define me, that everything is impermanent. Knowing those things on paper wasn’t enough, though: it was only at New Life that I could really feel them from within. I learned to regulate my emotions, to accept what was happening instead of trying to fight them and letting it spiral. My anxiety doesn’t paralyze me anymore. I can fully live.
