That Which Doesn't Kill Us
The unknown is always intimidating. Especially when the signs are negative. Signs such as hearsay from peers who went through similar experiences, strangers who post on the Internet, or even drawing from our own past similar experiences.
It doesn't help when the mind and soul are naturally negative, as our instincts tell us to go into survival mode the moment we sense uncertainty.
But let's not shortchange ourselves. Studies have shown that close to 90% of our worries never come to fruition. The unknown does not equate to danger.
So let's not let our minds play tricks on us. Let's dive into the unknown. Give it a chance, give it a benefit of doubt before we even get started. Make conclusions only after we come out of it. And if it does not kill us, we'll come out stronger!
