Here is another article about fear and how to handle fear at anytime you feel fearful and restless.Let me give you a quick hint or quick suggestion that you can implement immediately when you are experiencing negative states or when you’re going down the wrong pathway or thinking. So in that critical moment you may be thinking of a past incident that happened that makes you fearful, you may be thinking of something that was done to you and all this negativity is causing fear and resentment. What I recommend you to do in that moment ( you could call it an inflection point) is to distract yourself, to basically detract yourself from your thoughts.Start becoming aware of what you are thinking, so it’s like I am now thinking resentfully, I’m in a negative state. It’s like basically leaving that person there and the real you steps aside and observes what the false you is thinking in that moment. One doesn’t have to think positively always to combat negativity. All one needs to do is to transcend the negativity by seeing what it really is – false.
Once you develop this sense of awareness, you really start to see what you have been doing. You really start to see the hurt you have been causing yourself because as I’ve said and I repeat, we become what we think about. So my suggestion is to detract yourself from your thoughts. Become aware of what you’re thinking. Look back at that person that is thinking those things. You are at a level way higher. You are the controller. You can control what you think and by doing this, you are controlling what you think because you are looking back at the person who is stuck in that negative state. I think that is so powerful. Use it when you need to, and as I said, if you cannot stop negative states at the door, well, this is a great strategy that will enable you become aware of what you’re thinking. Awareness here is the key.
People suffering from depression think about stuff hours on end every day. A person has roughly 60,000 thoughts every day. The thoughts you think on a daily basis will dictate what life you have, and so people going through depression just get caught up in thinking negatively and they don’t realize that they are creating their future. So take yourself out of yourself, so to speak and look back to that person who is thinking negatively in all these negative states. The real you is always the person looking back at the person experiencing the negativity. You are at your core a positive person but you must at all times ensure you do not let yourself slide into destructive negative states. Practice this and it will improve your awareness.. This will stop negative states definitely in their tracks.
