How can you control your fear? I sometimes get into these certain situation where I panic. I want to get rid of it. I hate it

Report as

Try to look at the logic of the situation. How bad is it really? Take deep breathes, and look at possible solutions, if there are some. Do something else that requires your full attention, leaving you little space or time to feel panicky, and as you calm down, focus on those feelings. Diversion is sometimes key in situations we can't change or have no or little possible solutions for. If you're having a panic attack, simply come to recognize the situation for what it is. Don't focus too much on the sensations: it's simply your subconscious feeding signals to your body, from what it perceives as a threat or danger, based on what you're consciously feeding your subconscious. It's called "flight or fight mode". Your subconscious cannot discern reality from fantasy, but your conscious can. Stop at your thoughts, recognize the situation, or do something else.

There is a quote that reads "in all things it is better to hope than to despair". Try and look at the positive of whatever is going on, or what you CAN fix about it, rather than what you can't. I hope you feel better! sometimes I feel this way, too!

Shaylen........your answer is absolutely superb. I had a hunch that you might speak from experience here, since your answer is so detailed and helpful. Your answers are always so amazing young lady!
I want to thank you also for your beautiful prayer for our friend. You hit the nail right on the head with your comment, unfortunately. I said your prayer over two times. Really nice. Hope your friend is finding some happiness these days and that she is not feeling too much pain.

I've just always loved horses since I was little. When I moved to this small town I live in when I was little, I met this really nice lady that has a horse ranch. She use to teach my seminary class. Found out she had a horse ranch, and I'd ask to go frequently in the summer with a friend or my sister, and she'd let us ride. (She's super nice). She has tons of horses! Basically she boards, breeds, and trains horses. She has several of her own, but most are ones that belong to other people. It's really fun to ride though, we always will trot them down this lovely trail. In the spring, there are baby horses and calves everywhere! Oh my goodness... Almost nothing is cuter than a horse that's just a few weeks old... She let my sister pet and I pet one... So soft!

That's so cool! But doesn't it get hot?
Report as
Sometimes. I'd try not to go when it was too hot. Usually in the evenings or at noon. I wouldn't/ won't go if it was/is above 80. Summer usually gradually start getting hot. I hope I can go again soon though! I miss it there.

Hope you get to go again soon!

That kinda sounds like a panic attack, and I have them all the time, more often then not they're caused from stressing about something. (if you wanna talk feel free, cause ye, basically I have an extremely severe case of panic attacks, thus I may understand what yer goin through mate)

I use to get panic attacks all the time. There's this book called "The liden method" that had great coping skills that can help you overcome your anxiety, it did for me at least, if you're interested in researching it.:) diversion is the most effective method for me.

@right-Unfortanitly, I think you can only order it, and it's kinda pricey, but it really helps! I use to get panic attacks all the time. Now they're very rare, but I usually understand why and can calm myself.

If you are in a sealed off cell and they let loose a big rat in there with you, you will probably be afraid and run around screaming trying to avoid the huge rat, but if they re-opened the cell and let in a lion, you would instantly forget about the rat for your fear of the lion would drown out and overcome your terror of the now "not so scary rat." If you truly want to overcome all fears, then you must learn to fear God who is greater than all of things any man can face on this earth. When you realize that he has all things in his power and control,and that he has the power to condemn. Then you see how he is infinitely holy, righteous and sovereign then you begin to loose your fear of things because you are in reverence of him and trust him. Christ is the sustainer of all things, put your trust in him and he will be your security and boldness.
