When I try something new that is not something that falls within my comfort zone, it usually is something that causes some kind of worries or negative thoughts. As a result, when I try these things I never enjoy them not becuase of the activity itself, but because these nagging worries are always plaguing my mind. “What if this person thinks this about me?” “what did he/she mean by that?” “What if I get hurt doing this?” etc. etc. This is what keeps me from doing these things and when I do actually do them I am miserable because of it. I want to be able to put these thoughts out of my head, but don’t know the answer.
How do I get over this?
