Do you ever get scared?


Do you ever get scared?

Being the over thinking, over analyzing person I am I do maybe a bit more than some.  Then again, maybe mine is like others as well.

Getting scared of things like making the wrong decisions; in relationships, things I do, things I say, people I contact, etc….  I don’t know if you would even call it scared. Maybe uncertainty, nervous, anxiety and things like that instead.

All I know is I have a lot of that any more.  Where I used to be confident in what I did, said, handled things, etc…, I no longer am that person anymore.  I really don’t get it.  Although, I am finding out so much more about me at this time in my life.  I am finding the me I never knew. I guess because I now have the time to do so.

I am finding this world that I have just existed on, has so much more to offer and to see than I ever knew.  I never opened myself up to more until recently and wow, there is so much to experience and be a part of! I want to get outside this box I have been living in and do so much more.  I’m excited about the thought, yet scared at the same time.

So here I am back to the initial thought.  Is it scared or something more?

    1. Oh yes! Saw that on several memes as well. I am trying to realize I have to push through my fears and that my thoughts are not usually real, but how I think reality is regarding my fear. xx

      1. I understand, I make up all sorts of barriers and distorted beliefs in my head but they can feel SO real. I sometimes have to tap into the ‘f*ck it’ part of me and push through without overthinking too much x

        1. Yes! Exactly! Thank you for that…it makes me realize I’m not alone or the only one doing this. Even though I know I’m not, it’s nice to have that acknowledgment from others. ❤️xx

  1. I just old my teenager last year right in the middle of her 15 year moodiness and attitudes. I said “you know this feeling that you know everything and that you’re absolutely right? I want you to really cherish it because the older you get the more you will realize what an idiot you truly are and that you don’t know shit.” Lol

    At least that’s my sentiment. I like the not know no club. It is scary and it’s ok.

    I remember when I got interned against my will at a drug intervention kind of place. I never should have been there but that’s a long story. I hadn’t slept in 3 full days. I hadn’t showered in more probably. I was in horrendous pain and the young therapist that did my intake interviewed me and at the end she said “it’s going to be ok” and I said “no. It is ok” and she looked at me with shock. How could I in the midst of what looked was a physical but looked like a mental breakdown…. how could I looking, smelling like I did in that situations and environment say it was ok. I can’t say how but right at that moment it was ok. I was at peace with it.

    I love the calmness that comes in the eye of the hurricane. Let it all swirl around you. Stand strong. Knowing. You are. That’s it. No adjectives on the end of it. Just that.

    You ARE!!!

    It’s a glorious and miraculous thought. I think.

    1. LOVE your view on this and your way of thinking! And thank you for sharing. You’re right. It is okay to be scared because I have learned it’s our mind’s way of protecting us. Realizing it, working through it and feeling at peace with yourself and your decisions is difficult at times too. At least I feel that way with myself. That’s part of who we are. Thank you‼️xx
