Managing Your Fearful And Obsessive Thoughts
Copyright © 2006 Stanley Popovich
A Layman's Guide to Managing Fear

There are times when people encounter fearful thoughts that can 
be difficult to manage. For some people, the more they try to get 
rid of the thoughts, the more difficult they become to manage. As 
a result, here is a brief list of techniques that a person can 
use to help manage their fearful and obsessive thoughts.

The first thing a person must do is not to dwell or focus on the 
fear provoking thought when it comes. The more a person tries to 
reason out the thought or focus on the fear behind the thought, 
the stronger the thought becomes. The next time you encounter an 
obsessive thought, get into the practice of not dwelling on it.

A person should visualize a red stop sign in their mind when they 
encounter a fear provoking thought. When the negative thought 
comes, a person should think of a red stop sign that serves as a 
reminder to stop focusing on that thought and to think of 
something else. A person can then try to think of something 
positive to replace the negative thought.

Sometimes, a person may encounter a lot of scary thoughts coming 
at them all at once. Instead of getting upset, remember that 
these thoughts are exaggerated and are not based on reality. 
Usually it is the fear behind the thoughts that gets us worked 
up. Ignore the fear behind these obsessive thoughts, regardless 
how the strong the fear may be. If you ignore the fear behind 
these thoughts, then the thoughts become easier to manage.

A person should keep a small notebook of positive statements that 
makes them feel good. Whenever they come across a positive and 
uplifting verse that makes them feel good, write it down in a 
small notebook. A person can then carry this notebook around in 
their pocket and whenever they feel anxious, they can read their 

Another thing to remember is that no one can predict the future 
with one hundred percent certainty. Even if your fearful thoughts 
tell you otherwise, the fact is that there are circumstances and 
factors in every situation that can not be anticipated. We may be 
ninety-nine percent in predicting the future but all it takes is 
for that one percent to make the biggest difference.

There are ways to deal with your obsessive thoughts and with the 
proper treatment you can live a productive life.
