- Use positive self-talk: Replace negative thoughts with positive affirmations. Tell yourself that you can handle this situation and that you are strong and capable.
- Seek support: Talking to a friend or loved one about your fear can be a great way to gain perspective and gain support. If your fear is severe, consider seeking the help of a therapist or counselor.
