At times, a person might encounter a fearful thought that may be difficult to manage. When this happens, visualize a red stop sign, which can serve as a reminder to stop thinking about that thought. Regardless of how scary thought may be, do not dwell on it. This technique is good in dealing with obsessive and scary thoughts.
Sometimes, it helps to be able to talk to someone about our stressful situations. Talking to a trusted friend, counselor, or clergyman can not only make us feel better, but they can give you additional advice and insights on how to deal with your current problem. Managing your fears and anxieties takes practice. In time, you will become better able to deal with your stressful problems.
As a layman, I have over fifteen years of experience in dealing with fear and anxiety. At times, my fears had best of me, however I never gave up and I was always determined to find answers to my problems. Regardless of how difficult it may be to manage your fears and anxieties, answers are out there if you look hard enough.
