In an interview with the CBN on Thursday Afternoon at the North Carolina Governor, Pat McCrory’s mansion in Raleigh, the governor said he relies on his faith to cope with the anxiety and stress that come with his position.
Gov. Pat : What my faith does is bring me serenity and when I get anxious I try to use my faith to go say, “be anxious about nothing.”
It’s probably my greatest sin though… anxiety, because it gets to me at times. Everyone comes up to me and goes, “Governor, you must have incredible thick skin when people say pretty cruel things about you and even make threats.’ And the fact is I don’t… I just hide it and then I have to go off and walk my dog or pray or get with people and bring serenity to my life. That’s what my faith does for me.
