Life happens to all of us, and sometimes we go through patches where we worry about the outcome of certain situations.

Three things to do when you're worrying about the outcome of a situation:
1. Our worry comes from the unknown, and we tend to avoid what the absolute worst case scenario would be. However, when we avoid something, we give it power. You know that saying 'what you resist, persists?'
So, write down exactly what the worst case scenario is. What is the worst thing that could possibly happen in this circumstance. Write it out, flesh it out and make sure everything is acknowledged.
2. Now underneath that, write down 3 things that you could implement now, to help yourself if that were to unfold. It might be getting some financial advice, asking a friend to be on standby, or cooking yourself some meals and freezing them. Think practical; what does your future self need, to be in place if worst case scenario were to play out?
3. Recognise that you will still be here, you will still be standing and that you will be okay.
Sometimes it's so easy to get caught up in the anxiety, that we forget we'll be okay at the end, no matter what it looks like.
No matter how this plays out, no matter what goes wrong, how bad it gets or where life leads you you'll be okay.
I repeat; you will be okay.
Because, my friend, life doesn't give you a choice.
It moves onwards regardless.
And so will you.
