Fear is a natural experience, it is in our nature to be afraid. That said, sometimes fear can limit our potential and stop us from doing the things that would be beneficial, due to the limitations that we put on ourselves.

When you are afraid, you can find it difficult to carry on with day to day life. Sleeping, eating, socializing can turn into the impossible. Fear can ruin your life.

Origin of fear can stem from various sources, for instance, your childhood - through modeling your parents and how they act in certain situations or negative experiences in general. 

Fighting fear is not a walk in the park, it takes time and practice. I thought I would put together a little guide to help you navigate life even if you are afraid. In this post, I will share 10 ways to cope with fear in life.

Life update: Learning to find certainty in the unknown

'Cogito, ergo sum'


It feels like the whole world is falling apart, and here I am back from my blogging slumber, in an
attempt to share ideas with you. I don't know if you wondered where I have gone and why I have not written any posts for a couple of months. To be honest, I have been in turmoil - filled with despair and frustration, sick of social media nonsense. 

I just wanted to focus on reality. You know, the things outside the social media bubble. I had no intention to impress others. I have been learning new skills, listening to philosophy, making art. Trying to occupy my hectic mind.

When it comes to mental health and well-being, you happen to be biased to confirm your self-views, even if they are incorrect or critical. It's likely that you are not even aware of this.

This is not your fault, people have evolved to behave this way. If you are struggling with depression or other mental health difficulties, you may be stuck in a cycle of negativity due to your self-verification striving.

It's important to recognize damaging habits and work actively on your mind, in order to overcome mental challenges. Let's face it, we all need to actively attend to our thoughts and feelings. Your growth depends on this.

This post will teach you about the self-verification concept in social psychology and how it applies to your well-being and mental health.
