Why do I insist on giving my fears too much power?!?!?!
When I think about the weather; I worry about rain.
When I go to work; I worry about something going wrong.
When I take a class at school; I worry that I won’t understand what I am studying.
When I start studying; I worry that I am behind and cannot catch-up.
When I feel behind; I worry that I have already reached the point of NO return and that catching up is impossible.
When I am in a relationship; I worry that I am not good enough.
As a result of feeling inadequate; I have sabotaged good things for myself.
I have sabotaged good things because I believe that I am not good enough.
When I try to get in touch with someone and they don’t respond; I immediately assume that they are ignoring me.
When I think that someone is ignoring me; I automatically think that they are upset with me.
When I get into disagreements; I think that things are my fault and that I am the problem.
When I am afraid that I am the problem; it distracts me from the important things in life.
When I am distracted from the important things in my life; I am wasting valuable time.
When I waste valuable time; it keeps me from growing and becoming the person that I want to be.
I hate to admit that this is a deep-set habit and I give my fears way too much power over my life.
