noun: fear; plural noun: fears
Fear is a big thing to get over. I constantly have to try and get over my fears and the things that cause me anxiety. I don’t love it nor am I good at it.
I was in a bad car accident last winter and now that winter has begun I am getting nervous about driving in the snow. I didn’t think it would still scare me but it does. I also need to have a conversation with someone close to me that I really don’t want to have [I’m psyching myself out actually]. Now I know that I will be okay with both of these things but I am letting my fears get the best of me.
We had our first snowfall last weekend, which means it was our puppy’s first snow day! He was a little anxious about going out and playing in the snow but quickly realized that it would be fine and probably worthwhile in the end. Now I’m not comparing my problems with a dog experiencing snow for the first time but the concept is pretty damn close!
I think I need to learn to breathe and take it one moment at a time. What do you do to let go of anxiety and fear?4
