If you are fearful of something that hasn’t happened then you are simply predicting or guessing an outcome and suffering “fantasised fear” this means that you are frightened by the fear itself. The word fear is an extremely powerful word that scares us and when used in over thinking or over analysing is really a lack of self-belief, so what if we perceived it as a positive word or feeling? as it is to protect and alerts us to potential dangers. Having “no fear” should be much more concerning as it exposes us to much more risk and danger.
When we feel fear, we are simply being advised by our subconscious to check everything is OK and act accordingly.
Next time you are fearful of something that hasn’t happened just tell yourself that it is is a positive because it gives you the opportunity to double check the situation and will help stop you being overly fearful, which causes fantasised fear.
