I learned and still learning on my on example that panic is a huge scam. We heard so many times, that we cannot control everything and according to my opinion we can’t even control what we think we actually can. BUT we always need to know, that if things don’t work out the way we expect them to do so, it is NOT the end of the world! Even if it’s the worst situation. Moreover! Panic never helps! If you have any problem, or you have a negativ spiral, go for a walk, run, spend time in nature, sing, dance, make music, MOVE! And you keep doing until your head gets clear and you are able to realize that panic is a scam!
The Dalai lama says: “If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it's not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.”
