Sometimes thoughts (especially the negative, anxiety-inducing, catastrophic ones) repeat themselves like a tape that keeps playing the same song — over and over again inside your mind. Like:
What if (insert your worst case scenario) happens? What if I’m not ‘this or that’ enough? What if my plans fall apart? What will I do if there really is a zombie apocalypse?!?!?!
Know when it’s time to ‘change the tape’ and switch to a different song that’s better for you to listen to. Like:
I am expecting (insert your best case scenario) to happen. I am more than enough. If my plans do not work, then I’ll make new plans. I will survive the zombie apocalypse!
