When you try to put your pending things together and face that ton of work waiting for you, strange things happen. You have an expectation, made up scenarios on your mind.
But as you go ahead getting rid of all the piled up stuff, some troubles seem to fade away and eventually your priorities change their ranking. What seemed a catastrophe, now it makes you even smile thinking “silly me”. That should teach us how to make relative every problem we have. I have a little trick that is, when something provokes me anxiety, I think about how I will think in some months ahead. And I always find out I won’t even be thinking of it, so I start solving it but focusing my mind in that point where I will no longer care about it, so I can work on it but, with the calm that brings me feeling that everything’s right again.
It helps me control my nerves and anxiety attacks, it’s awesome, just give it a chance.
Another curious fact is that when you start facing your problems, you feel a kind of pride for being brave and responsible that makes you more confident and cheerful, it’s what you feel when you have all your life/work/family together. So, when I’m feeling bad, down, broken, I take a notebook and think about everything what’s bothering me, and it uses to be everything my own fault, pending things staining my consciousness. So I make a list and without thinking of how I feel about it (because if I do, I let in doubts, fears, insecurities… ) and I just hit the road.
This is an amazing training to get heart-courage and, slowly you learn how to deal with what you hate to deal in the precise moment the monster walks in the room. You will need no carpet to hide the trash underneath. Being brave and confident, pays off. But you have to learn and practice to make perfection, as any other skill in life.
