It is natural to have concerns. My concerns can help me identify worry and anxiety. By recognizing my concerns I can take actions to soothe my nerves and eliminate doubts.
Each concern I have is a thread. These threads occasionally enter my mind. When I ignore my concerns, I create an untidy and unmanageable tangle of threads.
I can take control of my life by addressing my concerns and organizing my thoughts. This allows me to loosen the threads, untangle them, and see each strand clearly.
By seeing my concerns as individual threads, I can manage them effectively. This allows me to be objective. I am able to organize my worries and address them in a practical way. I see where each concern begins and where it ends. I assess the value each concern may have in my life. Once I recognize my fears, I choose to move beyond them.
My mind is unburdened by the release of unnecessary and unhelpful worries. Eliminating troublesome concerns from my head is as easy as pulling a loose sting from my mind and throwing it to the wind. Organizing my thoughts and ridding myself of unproductive concerns is liberating.
Since I am in control of my thoughts, I do not allow my concerns to become an unmanageable jumble in my mind. I refuse to accumulate anxiety, so I deal with concerns in a rational manner. This allows me the freedom to release my worries and eliminate negative thoughts.
