“To start afresh and improve myself.”

Goal mo rin ba ‘to this new year, but fear seems holding you back?

afraid of new beginnings 01

Sa totoo lang, hindi ka ba napapagod matakot?

Yes, new beginnings can be overwhelming and nerve-wracking. But then, you won’t get anywhere unless you start somewhere. Check out these 5 ways to help you conquer your fear of new beginnings:

change is inevitable

  1. Accept that change is inevitable.

Change is a part of life, whether you like it or not. Maraming bagay ang hindi mo kontrolado, mga pangyayaring hindi mo inaasahan. How you deal with it will determine whether you’ll remain stagnant or grow in maturity.

Acknowledging change and uncertainty will help you face new beginnings, according to Counseling Directory.

evaluate what transpired

  1. I-evaluate mo ang mga pangyayari.

When fear is overwhelming, mahirap makapag-isip ng maayos. So, take some time to breathe and assess your situation.

According to Josh Steimle in his article 14 Ways To Conquer Fear, if natatakot ka na baka hindi mo na naman ma-achieve ang desired results mo, you have to figure out kung saan ka nagkamali and then try a different approach.

Kasi, baka try ka nang try tapos same pa rin ‘yung methods mo in handling it. Talaga namang results will remain the same because you didn’t apply what you learned from your past experiences.

be willing to learn

  1. Be willing to learn.

“If your fear is based on a lack of information, then get the information or knowledge you need to examine the situation based on facts rather than speculation,” Steimle also pointed out.

And instead of overthinking and trying to figure out everything, educate yourself. Mag-research o kaya ay humingi ng tips sa mga mas experienced. Read books or any tools that will help you gain knowledge. You’ll see na mas makakahinga ka nang maluwag when unfavorable circumstances come kasi may idea ka na sa mga kakaharapin mo.

have some friends

  1. Hindi mo kaya mag isa. Get help.

If you think na kaya mo mag-isa, you’re wrong. Hindi naman ibig sabihin na kapag humingi ka ng tulong ay weak ka na agad. Every person needs a trustworthy companion, a mentor, or a support group.

The last thing that you want to feel is pressure and judgment so piliing mabuti kung kanino ka magshe-share, says Leila Dorari in her article How to Conquer the Fear of New Beginnings. Look for someone who will listen, understand, and help you overcome your fears.

let go of the uncontrollable

  1. Let go of the thought that YOU are in control.

YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL, GOD IS.

He cares for you. He is for you. He is madly in love with you. Kaya lang ang problema, you’re dwelling so much in your fears. Nakakalimutan mo na nandiyan Siya lagi para sa’yo (Hebrews 13:5) and He has you in the palm of His hand (Isaiah 49:16).

You don’t need to figure everything out kasi you’re limited. What you need to do is to TRUST GOD. He knows the end from the beginning and declares your future WONDERFUL!

life is full of struggles and uncertainties

Life is full of struggles and uncertainties kaya sa faithfulness, goodness, at love Niya ikaw kumapit kasi ‘yun ang solid at hindi magbabago!
