The Write Way to Help Worries and Fear Disappear
doubt, and fear about future events usually causes us to ask, "What if ?"
Whenever you find yourself in that kind of situation,
write a WASTE list - a Worried, Anxious, Stressful, Tense Emotion list.
"What if I were to make a mistake?" becomes "Even if I were to make a mistake, I am not a failure. I'm okay because I choose to believe that I have the inner strength to deal with whatever will come to be"
at least two positive responses for each "what if" situation.
You'll find that by focusing on writing your "even if" statements, much of the present worry and fear will be relieved. And, if you save your list and refer to it a month later, you'll most likely find that many of your "What ifs" never happened
It's a waste of energy to worry about things that may never happen.
It's impossible to predict the future.
It's important to deal with one day at a time.
Believing that you can deal wtih whatever happens is the key to feeling confident, comfortable, and secure
