Does anyone else get stages where you are convinced that your worst fears have become true?

Yes. The more you ruminate on a thought the more you are convincing yourself it’s true.

@random_person Yes. You are just teaching your brain to trust yourself less and less

If I try my best not to ruminate and not do compulsions will it start to feel less real? Or is it too late now?

Is there a way to avoid those fears to become true? If i change my mind and think about that topic positively, it won't happen?

I mean i have a one fear since childhood and most of the times i am scared that it will be true. So now i think about Manifestation, when you believe in something, it will happen in reality too, maybe years later, and can i avoid it, if i don't believe in this now and start to think more positive about it?

@vu I mean, I get the whole “maifestation” thing. No offense but I feel like manifestation is bullshit and thinking things into reality is magical thinking. I don’t think about a cup of coffee and then it appears in front of me. If you’re mind is saying it could happen, then you have to not argue with the thoughts about it and accept it. If you stop arguing with the thoughts you will see it more logically in time.

@Anonymous I mean i don't want to accept that fact that my fear will be true someday and i want to change my mindset about it, i mean, i want to don't be scared anymore. And about Manifestation, if you want a cup of coffee it won't appear in front of you in that moment, but you will have a possibility to make it for yourself, nothing is happening without trying, this is how life works i think.

@vu The only way to not be afraid of it is to accept there is a slim chance it could be true. You’re not accepting that it will come true. You’re accepting that you don’t know. And if it comes true you’ll deal with it when you get there. And you’re right, we can’t make things magically happen just because we think them.

@Anonymous Of course we can't, but think about it can give us hope which helps lot when you are doing something. I will remember what you said about my fear, thank you.

@set_me_free:) Ahh I see what you are saying- that if you think positive it can help you in the future. I think I slightly misunderstood that part- was trying to say that thinking about your fear won’t make it come true. Sorry if I confused you at all or came off as rude! Yes go out there and be positive. You got this friend ❤️
