When we were kids we used to use our imagination and dream of being superheroes. Nowadays, we use her imagination to have nightmares like not being able to pay our bills.
Because our brain doesn’t distinguish between imagination and real life, we feel the fear and the stress is though it has already happened. We feel like we failed before the event has ever come to pass.
Unfortunately, the only way to get through this is to learn to control your mind. To learn to keep telling yourself ‘nothing happened, everything still OK’. And if for some reason you do run into an uncomfortable situation, you will deal with it when the time comes. There is no point in being stressed 30 days of the month, for something that’s going to happen once and may not even happen at all.
