Lots of remedies are out there – maybe too many – some of which promote more anxious thinking.
Focus on one thought.
99% of what we fear will never happen.
And that 1% will very likely not be as we feared or imagined.
That means we are worrying about things that can never hurt us.
Our thoughts about fear are hurting us more.
We can talk ourselves into more anxiety even as we spend time being aware of it and trying to fight it.
For every fear thought, a reminder.
99% of what I fear will never happen.
Why spend so much of my life waiting for it?
