4 Ways to Confront Fear

4 Ways to Confront Fear

Fear is a very crippling feeling , which you might have to go through at various situations of life. You might be scared of heights, darkness, and public speaking, even scared of being lonely. Fear is very difficult to overcome as it can debilitate you and render you useless. Even if you cannot be superhuman, you can at least aim to be someone who can confront his/her fear and render the fear useless. Here are a few tips on how you can confront your fear:

  1.  Breathe: Breathing slowly and deeply actually helps. It calms your nerves and relaxes you. Short and shallow breaths can trigger panic and fear. If you breathe out longer than the time you take to breathe in, your body relaxes immediately. Try it; it actually works the best. Whenever you feel that you are panicking or that you are feeling afraid, take deep breaths. Concentrate on your breathing. Count till 7 when you breathe in and till 11 when you breathe out. You will be surprised to find out how quickly you have calmed down.
  2. Identify the fear: This is a very important step as you need to figure out why you are scared or afraid. There has to be a specific reason behind every single fear that you have. Try to identify that reason. Delve deep into your memory and try figuring out what exactly evoked the fear. Once you know the reason, you will be able to understand the base of your fear, and you will find it easier to overcome.
  3. Get ready to be peaceful: If you start feeling anxious, nervous or afraid, breathe in and out. Then think of how you will get positive outcomes from the particular act you are being anxious about. If you have to go into a dark room to get something and you are afraid of darkness, just think how you will be able to get what you desire if only you step into the darkness for a fraction of second. This will help build your confidence and will slowly get you accustomed to moving on with your fear.
  4. Control what you imagine: If you are afraid of something, whether tangible or not, your imaginations about it will run wild. You might start imagining stuff which are not even real or which might just ingrain your mind and establish the fear on solid ground. Hence it is high time you need to control your imagination. Imagination is a very unique gift if you want to create something beautiful, which will help encourage you. But if you start imagining how a spider will just grow in size and number, and will fly towards you, then you have to put a lid on it.

Being afraid is common. Even the bravest people are afraid. Don't be embarrassed about that. Just face it and try to let go of it.

In my entire life most of the people friends, close associates in the beginning turn out non cordial unhappy leading to broken relationship. Why it so happens? No answer is given to me when I ask them the reason.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
I can imagine how sad and frustrating it might be for you to see that most of the relationships are falling apart. It is true especially in present times. There are many reasons. But the most important reasons are lack of effective communication skills, lack of assertive behaviour techniques and rigid values, perceptions and expectations of an individual. We all come from different backgrounds and varied socio-economic status. While growing up we learn behaviours from our parents, teachers, and other close family members. Depending on our upbringing, environment at home, and our own life experiences, we develop our own biases, perceptions and values. And we all start believing that our own values and perceptions are" the" truth. Depending on these values and perceptions we have our own set of expectations from different relations. Hence when we have someone coming from a different background and different upbringing, we experience clash of values, perceptions and expectations. Since, each person believes that she/he has" correct" set of values and perceptions, it becomes difficult for them to understand the other person. Unfortunately, in our entire education system, we are never taught" how to listen to the other person" and" how to communicate our own feelings/needs effectively, without hurting the other person. When more people will be equipped with" effective communication skills" and when more people will learn" assertiveness" relationships will improve. Learning both these skills, help a person to be flexible, it gives each person more awareness about their own values/beliefs/perceptions. It also helps in understanding the other person's views and accepting the fact that the person has a right to have different opinion/set of values and expectations. You did not get the answer to your question from your relatives/friends, probably, because, they themselves are not aware about these important skills, and each person is thinking that he/she is right and the other person is wrong and needs to change. In fact, both individuals need to change their own learned styles of communication and expressions, if it is not helping the relationship. And" unlearning" the" learned" behaviour is possible. At your age, I am sure, you have lots of experience and wisdom to help such people who are suffering from dysfunctional relationships. If you are satisfied with my answer, please persuade more people to learn better communication skills and help them in being assertive. It will be a great help for the society as such. Thank you.

There seems to be a rift between your mother and your wife. Which according has made your mother feel depressed. Firstly when you say she goes into depression thinking about the previous fights means some overthinking is happening the real cause of the problem may be hidden elsewhere. Explain it to her that overthinking is also a problem nothing positive comes from it and ask her to focus to real issues as in like why the fight happened what she can do to avoid such fights and when both the party discusses it with u, you can act as a mediator. Hope this helps.

I am 19 years old female. I have many problems. But my mind is not constant in my studies. And I sleep late in night.

Decreased concentration can be a symptom of depression or anxiety. Distractions like mobile phones, computers can also cause decreased concentration. Eat well, sleep on time, maintain a regular day structure, meditation, breathing exercises, focus on the task, all these will improve concentration.

What is the better treatment to stop anger bcoz due to anger there is very problem creates.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You cannot reduce emotions. I guess you may be thinking of ways to avoid them: that also is not possible in any healthy way. You have to face your feelings and learn to express them in appropriate ways. All feelings are good. They are a very important aspect of the human personality. Most people have a problem in expressing emotions. Some, like you, want to avoid them. If people use denial, they may not experience the emotion but the unconscious mind is continuously registering the feeling and it moves it to an organ (which may differ from person to person), and that unexpressed feeling will stress that organ to either make it malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. This is the psychosomatic effect that sometimes entails a whole lot of medical interventions and hospitalizations. Why do all that! just deal with your feelings by expressing them, as soon as possible, and always.

The cause of borderline personality disorder isn't well understood. Diagnosis is made based on symptoms. Symptoms include emotional instability, feelings of worthlessness, insecurity, impulsivity and impaired social relationships. Treatments include talk therapy or, in some cases, medication. Hospitalisation helps if symptoms are severe.

Yes, beer is good for health if you have 40 ml on daily basis. This will act like a medicine. This will increase your immune system and boost up your body and mind. Cigarette is more harmful than hookha so avoid hookah.

Sir I am a smoker since 2 years and I had a habit of smoking only when I drink but from past 2 year I smoke a lot abd irrally wabt to quit smoking please help me with some tips which will really hepl me in quting smoking abd olz tell me whether there is a chances of causing cancer I am 24 year old now a days when I smoke I feel like blurd vision please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Cigarette smoke does affect your skin, eyes, and hair among other things. I am glad that you want to give up smoking. About the possibility of cancer, it is difficult to say depending on various factors. But for this level of smoking we may assume that you may not have caused that kind of development. Usually, when you cease smoking a lot of the damage that was caused earlier due to the smoking can be reverted back to good health. Again, when you drink and smoke, they together can cause more damage to the liver than indulging in drinking alone. All of these can be restored by stopping cigarette smoking. Here is how to go about it: the best way is to find out about the harmful effects of smoking and tobacco. The knowledge itself helps keep the intention to stop active. But as you know that is not enough but it does have a telling effect. I remember that in the early nineties, we knew that smoking was reducing by 1% annually in the west while it was growing by 2% in india, all because of the awareness created by various agencies in the developed countries. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you stay out of it. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. And one of its effects is to affect the erectile capacity of your penis. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may join smokers anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all, announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here? s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages, and when temptations are at their highest.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - Is It a Common Form Of Anxiety?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - Is It a Common Form Of Anxiety?

Anxiety and stress are regular occurrences that happen to all individuals in certain situations. But if these become habitual and take place in excessive frequency, then it is symptomatic of a psychological problem. Anxiety disorders require proper treatment through counseling and therapy for leading a healthy stress-free life.

Anxiety impacts each person at a different level and is accompanied by various types of irrational phobias. Hence it differs from case to case. There are a few general types into which anxiety disorders can be categorized. Some of these types are as follows:

  1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): This kind of anxiety is constant and vague and does not appear to stem from any specific factor. Those suffering from it are affected during all waking hours and even in sleep when it is disturbed and irregular due to unending stress.
  2. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD): A person suffering from ocd experiences uncontrollable compulsions and is unable to keep from obsessing over issues of trivial nature. This manifests itself in definite behavioral patterns which become rigid and inflexible.
  3. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): This is an extreme form of anxiety disorder that is caused when the patient experiences a traumatic event or life-threatening accident that leaves a mental scar. It takes the form of panic attacks, nightmares, sudden mental breakdowns, hyper vigilance, and excessive nervousness.
  4. Panic Disorder: The patients of this disorder experience sudden panic attacks which occur frequently without any specific trigger. It is also accompanied by the fear of having such attacks, as well as a fear of being in places from where it is difficult to escape in the event of an attack.
  5. Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD): Also known as social phobia, sad causes a person to be in constant fear of being negatively viewed by people. It involves constant fear of public humiliation and also gives rise to performance anxiety or stage fright.

How to Recognize An Anxiety Disorder?

There are many symptoms of anxiety disorders which have both physical and emotional symptoms. Following are the most common signs of chronic anxiety:
