Re: [CHAT]: How to do something that scares the shit out of you

I'm terrified of the free-fall. But as soon as the slack picks up, I'm fine.

My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

With all this talk about fear, how have you pushed through it in the past?

With all this talk about fear, I want to know how you have pushed through it in the past.
My fear of failure pushed me really hard at tafe but I did really well and passed everything and it's given me the confidence to apply for uni.

Count to 5 really quick and do the thing. Like call the scary person or say the scary thing, or whatever. That's not exactly a carefully thought out psychological thing but it works for me Smiley Tongue

Remembering to breathe is a must! Deep breaths often calm me down.

I like to think I'm a logical person, most of the time, so once the initial intense fear passes a bit I like to try to put things into perspective. In the end, if something is really worth it there will be a way to get through the fear. I guess that approach relates more to fear of non-life threatening situations like socialising or talking about things. If there's danger.. run!

Embrace your inner Nike and JUST DO IT.

Sometimes you gotta use your 20 seconds of courage and go for it. Sometimes that's not possible, which is okay. I think learing about the fear and recognising that it's there is important.

Re: [CHAT]: How to do something that scares the shit out of you

If using my mobile phone, I usually type in the number and then in a moment of bravery, I press dial. Then I hope they don't pick up, but always am relieved when they do coz I don't have to dial them again, hopefully.
