I've been kinda "high strung" for most of my life.
From about the ages of 2-5 years old, I'd pass out from time to time after getting worked up over something. Insomnia through most of my childhood, I think due to over thinking above anything else. A full on phobia of public speaking all through high school and into college.
I've made great strides. Really. I mostly got over my phobia of public speaking (thanks Toastmasters!) but still don't like being "in the spotlight" in almost any circumstance. I've been to therapy and did a 10 week "social anxiety" group workshop which was cool. Social situations don't freak me out these days like they used to and I find myself giving fewer fucks every year. So that's cool.
One area I'd still like to work on is anxiety around money. I am very meticulous when it comes to money and like to think I'm somewhat savvy in the area. Still, my relationship with money is based on fear and a "scarcity" mindset, worrying, "is there enough? Will there ever be enough?". Isn't that the human condition? Nothing seems to ever be enough, even if you're Bezos or King Midas.
I'd like to maintain my discipline for saving and investing but have a more relaxed relationship with it. I'd like to have a mindset of "abundance" when it comes to money. That would be nice.
