Fear is everywhere and yet fear can be overcome, controlled and can even be a power for good.
Accept your fear relative to you.
Could that really happen?
By seeing fear as not the end destination but part of being human, you can see through its wily evil ways and move forward.
Think of someone you can always rely on, be it your friend, partner, colleague, parent, sibling and say: “Right I need to deal with this, and I’m going to need you to help me.”
They, in turn, will feel valued, loved and respected.
Just because something feels scary, doesn’t mean it’s actually risky. Educate yourself about the facts and the risks you actually face by doing the things that scare you.
The key to facing your fears is to take one small step at a time. Going too fast or doing something too scary before you are ready can backfire.
Keep moving forward. A moderate amount of anxiety is good. Don’t wait to take a step forward until your anxiety disappears.
If you can’t actually do the thing that scares you to practice, you might use imagined exposure.
