Asked for female, 25years old from Visakhapatnam
Of course, she can get help and resolve it too. It seems that she is having performance anxiety and is probably attaching herself to results too much. There is a lot of insecurity, which may have been there from the past. She may be curbed by high expectations that are raising her anxiousness. This is abnormal fear and since fear finds a form, she will look at something to make her feel that she cannot perform. She needs to learn to detach from the results and focus on the process. This is ideally done through an exercise of mindfulness meditation and concentration. The future has not yet happened and her anticipation levels may be higher than normal, and her expectation levels together with fantasizing may go to unrealistic levels. She should consider going to a tutor and checking her reasonableness of results with the teacher and correct the aberration. In the meantime, she must do regular exercise, meditation, eat a healthy diet, sleep adequately and live stress-free. In counseling, she can seek the help of the therapist to help her handle her emotions well, especially fear, and bring them to normal levels. If you examine her childhood for any contribution to this reaction to fear, she can work on those experiences. In today’s world, especially in the field of education, there is a lot of competition and expectations, that are pushing our kids to high performance for everything. We must learn to reduce and accept that sometimes it is okay to perform at a lesser level but that we must learn a lesson to handle the future better eventually.
