Re: Sometimes I feel scared

Hi @The-Hams ,

 

Fear can be a hard emotion to sit with. What's on your mind?

 

Here with you Heart

Re: Sometimes I feel scared

Hi @The-Hams 

I am here to listen. I think at this time especially with all thats going on in the world its understandable.

@pinklollipop @cloudcore

I feel scared about my future
I feel worried about what I will do on my days
I am too self conscious
I am feeling isolated from the ideal situation I could be in (with a good job, good people around me etc)
I just feel hopeless

There is choice paralysis and also fear over not having anything to do

Re: Sometimes I feel scared

Hey @The-Hams . I know all too well the feeling of being paralysed by choice, it's incredibly overwhelming.We are bombarded from a young age with the message that we are only worth the job we do and the career we choose, which is a toxic notion that is difficult to unlearn. 

 

In my experience, mental distance greatly helps clarity. If I need to decide on something, I've often noticed it's easier to do so when I've taken a step away from it. Perhaps you could dedicate a day to doing anything except focus on career stuff? Spontaneity, curiosity, and fun are all hugely helpful for creativity, and creativity is one of our best tools for problem-solving. Just my two cents! 

Re: Sometimes I feel scared

Hi @Jynx
I agree with you
I am trying to engage with this theme sporadically. In pieces each day. Rather than bombard myself with more than I can realistically handle at one time.

Life is going to be hard in the next few months

Re: Sometimes I feel scared

@The-Hams
That makes sense- rather than letting all the emotional response come at once.... I have to I guess emotionally plan for life changes too 🤔 hope I’m following. Otherwise you just get hit by a big whack of emotion all at once?

Re: Sometimes I feel scared

Hi @The-Hams 

I'm sorry you feel this way. 
Scared of the future is one thing I stress about too 

I really feel for you 

You're the same age as my son

I wish there was something I could do to help 

I care about you
