Sometimes we get stressed out when everything happens all at once. When this happens, you should take a deep breath and try to find something to do for a few minutes to get your mind off of the problem. You could get some fresh air, listen to some music, or do an activity that will give you a fresh perspective on things.
You should visualize a red stop sign in your mind when you encounter a fear provoking thought. When the negative thought comes, you should think of a red stop sign that serves as a reminder to stop focusing on that thought and to think of something else. You can then try to think of something positive to replace the negative thought. Know your personal limits. It is good and wonderful to help others in need but you have to start with yourself first.
