Two weeks back, I was feeling fear throughout my body and also in my actions, it was manifesting in terms of reacting to small things at home. While doing emotional journalling that day, I asked myself, what is this fear telling me? We have relocated to NJ four months back and we were trying to adjust to all the changes around and then suddenly this corona issue happened, which none of us in the world were prepared for. I realized that I was worried about my son who is 16 years old and knows more about the situation outside more than us. So I had a discussion with him about me feeling vulnerable and just told him to save few numbers of our close friends here. Fear was a message telling me to just prepare for any worst thing. Once I took some action on that I felt better.
We just can’t avoid fear, just accept and take action towards what your fear is telling you.
