First, a question: Why are we scared of things we don’t know?
Most people will have a problem with the unknown because they don’t know what to expect. But does it serve a purpose to be scared of the unknown? No, it stops you from taking steps forward into the future you, and it will keep us from learning and growing. Being careful and keeping our focus on what might happen or might not happen makes us anxious and in a stressful state. I am not saying it is easy to change, but it is possible. Extend your view on how you think and see things. You can do this, and you are worth it.
We all have these moments where we start doubting our choices or fear the path we went on. What we need to do at these points is to ask ourselves the question if it is relevant.
Is it helpful to think like this? (thoughts can trigger feelings and emotions)
Does it serve me to feel scared about that? (fear is most of the time relevant because there is no life-threatening situation)
Do I feel stressed because I am in danger? (stress is an emotion that sets off adrenaline in your body, so your body is ready to run or fight)
So by asking these questions to ourselves when we feel like that, we can put our thoughts on halt. When we answer the questions with honesty, we see that we were not in real danger. It is more important then we think to reason with ourselves on a reasonable level. Breath deeply in and softly out a few times to get your heart rate down after the stress feeling. Remember these things, and it will be a lot easier to let go of stressful situations and fear. See how it will serve you.
You can do it; you are the architect of your own life. You can change it whenever you want and how you want it. We all have this ability in ourselves to create and change what we want. You are a beautiful soul with potential to grow above your levels of understanding. Extend your view to grow as a person, and spiritually, you are worth it.
