Facing our fears is a challenge for all of us. And they’re very tricky if you don’t know how to handle them. They may come as a surprise or they may be known and continue to loom, waiting, expecting you to fight back. This is exactly what we need to do, fight back.
If it’s a school presentation or exam coming up, the anxiety that builds up because we need to do well, is self created. Remember, our fears, our anxieties are all created within us. Our mind is so powerful that it implodes on itself, resulting in fears, anxieties, nervousness, etc. The longer and longer we put these off, the more it builds and builds, creating a “mountain out of a molehill” for you of older generations. So how do we handle such issues? How do we handle nervousness or fear?
When the first sign of fear or nervousness rears it’s ugly head, you must confront it as soon as possible! Because once again, if you don’t, it’ll continue to feed off of your endless, doubting conscious. What if this happens? What if that happens? What should I say? Will people make fun of me? Should I say this now or later? All of these endless questions that go through your head is part of the process. Once you begin to question yourself, you have to act now! Don’t let these doubting questions overcome your initial thoughts and beliefs. It’s so often we find ourselves doubting and regretting doing or saying things, simply because our mind was running wild, with “what if’s” and “should I’s.”
Have confidence, and remember, don’t worry about what other people think, because there’s only one that’s judging you, Him. And do you think he cares if you messed up? No, keep your faith strong and He will relieve you of your fears!
