Last night in my therapy group, some people wrote down their fears, as well as ways to let go of fear.
I fear that I did not take a picture of all I wrote in that group session. However, here are some of all the fears I listed:
- Mistakes that are irrevocable.
- Losing out on something I want.
- Death (mine and other people’s).
- Stupid or mean people in positions of power.
- The cold.
- The dark.
- Bad doctors.
- Car accidents.
- The news.
The sum of all the fears I wrote down last night was much larger than that.
Here are some of my ways to reduce fear:
- Take a deep breath.
- Name the fear.
- Self care.
- Ask for help.
- Take a small step forward.
- Connect with supportive people.
- Be in the here and now.
- Healthy food.
- Drink plenty of water.
While I didn’t take pictures of anything I wrote in last night’s therapy group, never fear! I did take the sum of all these photos yesterday:
What might be some of your fears and ways to reduce fear?
I fear I forgot to include something important in my second list, above.
My gratitude to all who helped me create the sum of this post and — of course! — to YOU.
