Replace Fear-Based Thinking with Love-Based Thinking

Posted on September 05, 2018

"Every time you're making a choice, ask yourself if it's going to cultivate the experience of unity and love or the experience of separation and stress." – Deepak Chopra

We all experience fear. When it comes to living with a chronic condition like chronic pain, fear can manifest in many ways. Sometimes our initial diagnosis gives us fears about our quality of life. Dealing with the realities of our "new normal," with chronic pain can put us in a chronically fearful state of mind. Will I have a flare today? Will I be able to attend to my daily tasks pain-free? Fear about outcomes that are beyond our control can facilitate fear taking root.

"I finally came to realize that my fears about having X and what that could potentially mean were ADDING to my pain. Once I consciously decided to relieve myself of that burden I could better focus on managing my chronic pain." – Member of MyChronicPainTeam

Glad to hear you got past the fear.
Strange, but fear is a choice we make, often unconsciously.
Best to just let that go. And I'm glad you did!
