Situation avoidance is something that is common among people with anxiety and is probably still common with people who don’t have anxiety. But it doesn’t really help with the situation.
We all come across a situation that makes our anxiety rise, or thing that we don’t want to deal with.
But we have to deal with it at some point in your life.
Because that’s life.
I mean its not feasible to avoid going to the grocery store because you don’t want to talk to the cashier when you pay.
I mean you can’t just go your whole life not going to the grocery store because of that.
And avoiding it now is not helping you get to a point that you can go do that.
And that means you are going to have to get up and go out their and do that thing that you don’t want to do.
It sucks, its going to suck, but you have to do it any way.
Because its only this way that you are going to be able to get to the point where you can get through this situation with a bearable amount of anxiety.
And this goes toward any type of situation that you are avoiding.
Its the same thing if you are avoiding a person because of some type of problem. Because they are probably going to continue with you avoid them.
Really its all about gaining the experience with these types of situations to be able to get through them.
It won’t be easy, and it differently won’t be solved after getting through the situation once.
But as you keep going through the same type of situation you will get to a point that you will get enough experience to be able to be at least okay getting thought that situation.
So, don’t let your self continue to avoid a situation, because really that’s only making it worse.
Because as you avoid this situation you are giving your brain more fuel to the fire that is the thoughts of what will go wrong if you do go through this situation.
And it lets your mind get into the pattern of fearing the situation.
So, take a deep breath and let your self start moving forward with what ever process you need to getting to and through the situation.
Because you can do it, its just the matter of finding the way to do so.
