Fill the blanks: “If I’m not in control of X, I’m scared X will happen.”
You’re scared. You’re worried. You’re afraid.
And that’s understandable. What’s happened in the past has scarred you. And that’s okay. I get it.
But it’s a cognitive bias.
Just because something has happened in the past doesn’t mean it’s definitely going to happen again.
It might, but you’d know what to do this time anyway. You’ve got the experience now to handle it.
The need for control is just fear in disguise. Have compassion for the part of you that is just trying to protect you here. It doesn’t want you to get hurt.
It’s doing it’s job.
Sending love to all my fellow control freaks out there. We’ll get there ❤️ We’ll get brave. ❤️
