It may feel like the rug is being pulled out from under you. But is that really the case? When we stop ourselves from panicking, and look at what the situation is, squarely, it puts things in perspective. Here are some things you can remember to center yourself.
Whether you feel it or not, you’re okay.
Look at what’s really happening — why, really, do you feel frightened, what are you feeling, what have you got to lose? As you write this out, you’ll realize that even in the worst-case scenario, you’ll be okay.
You’ve always gotten through, why would this be different?
Look at your track record. Call to mind 3 similar situations when you were feeling uneasy and everything turned out okay. It’s likely to be the same this time.
You don’t have to do it all.
You can’t control everything, and you don’t have to do it alone. Ask for help if you need it, and let go of the things you can’t change.
