“Self-compassion is giving the same kindness to ourselves that we would give to others”
While showing compassion to others, we often forget that it is as important as self-compassion. Learning from your mistakes is good but accepting the fact that we can fail is equally important. When we don’t accept that it is possible to fail in any event it is quite natural to occur, we dwell on our shortcomings. This leads to anxiety and thus the courage to try things will be diminished. One needs to understand that every person has their own abilities and stop comparing it with others. Just the way we try to understand others, similarly we must face all situations and not run away from them.

The way, you look at anything with a calm mind will let you make better decisions and keep you from any feeling of anxiousness. It would also help you gain resilience and that adds to your reactions to a situation. It is going to help you analyze your and others behavior as well and reduce the chances of getting affected by anybody’s actions.
3. Positive Mindset
“Every day may not be good, but there is good in every day” and this is a simple example of a positive mindset. Keeping such thoughts in mind will help you get over the fear slowly. Even though you take small steps, you will get over it one day or at least learn how to deal better. Even if it does not yield results one must not lose hope and take it as a chance to work hard. The positive attitude helps you in accepting challenges and your brain works in the direction to find solutions to any situation. This is a way to eliminate the anxiety, you might have felt otherwise which leads to negativity.
