2. Recognize that uncertainty is normal and part of life.
Feeling unsure at times is expected. After all, no one can predict the future. If that were the case, we wouldn’t have such high rates of anxiety, which is built upon the foundation of threat fueled by unfamiliarity. If you’re in a relationship and you’re worried about your partner potentially cheating on you or breaking up with you for someone else, realize that your uncertainty is valid. After all, you will never know whether or not your partner will reject you.
But, not knowing and the uncertainty that comes with it is a limitation that you should learn to accept. Because if you don’t, your obsessive thoughts and concerns will only consume you. This influences your mind to roam and you may end up creating a problem before it even exists. Instead of focusing on the what-if’s, learn to appreciate the present by practicing mindfulness.
