THE DANGER OF PUSHING YOUR FEARS AWAY
There are a lot of tools and techniques that will encourage you to push away your fear.
People will sell you the possibility of being FEARLESS.
It is a nice perspective, but it is not evolutionarily possible. 🤷♀️ As humans we feel fear, it is such an incredible mechanism that keeps us alive, that helps us judge whether a situation is dangerous or not, whether we need to act or run away.
It is one of the main reasons I do not see the possibility of living without it. 🧐
The danger resides on your willingness to spend time gaining perspective, processing, managing and negotiating with those fears.
If you are not willing to do so, they will hunt you over and over again. 🏃♀️ Fear wakes you up ☀️ You might have tried your hardest to find tools such as positive thinking, distraction or visualisation to deal with fears.
Perhaps you have put them into practice repeatedly and found out that the effect does not last.
Self-doubts keep popping up. 😫
The big problem is that you might start to be harsh on yourself because it does not seem to work.
What is it that you are doing wrong? Your mind might tell you. You might focus on “your lack of capacity or ability to do it well” when in reality the expectation of not feeling fear or having doubts is unrealistic. 💣
The key is not to blame yourself.
Use the tools. Some of them are great.
However, if they don’t work, be compassionate, they might well not be the right techniques for you at this point. 🙏
