What are your fear triggers?
I had a really difficult time building my Fear File, and I am still working on it. I think one of the reasons why it was more difficult was because I tend to think in pictures and memories other than in words, but I will give you what I have so far.
I have a fear of being awkward and that leading to rejection from my peers. (Anxiety) I have a fear of failure and that leading to a rejection from my boss and other co-workers. I have a fear of failure that leads to the fear that I will do something to disappoint my parents. I have a fear of not finding that woman whom I will spend the rest of my life with. Although I have a hard time getting recognition for things that I do, I am afraid that some of the things I do won’t be appreciated. I am afraid of not reaching my goals in life…. On a much more surface and less venerable level, snakes and spiders also really freak me out.
What was your aha moment today?
- It was really cool to hear about how simply Confronting
and validating the fears and acknowledge the brain can make everything better!
This video does another great job at explaining how you can work on avoiding these fears and re-naming and acknowledging the brain.
