i was just wondering if u have a fear over something, maybe because you dont fully understand it or whatever but ur common sense knows that even though u dont completley understand, what u do know is enough to be ok, why then is the fear still there? for me, its naggs and naggs at me and i wonder if it will ever go away, is common sense enough to win in the end.. ive tried this, moving on going with what i know, but the nagging is still there.. do u think if you just ignore the nagging and tell urself over and over only the things that make sense that eventually the thought and nagging will stop? and that it will be a distant memory?  is that at all possible? if u invest alot of thoughts into something then it is hard to find ur way out on ur own, wondering if anyone has had the thought nagging experiance over something and how did u get out of it? for exp, a person who has a fear of death, they probably wont ever understand it completley.. so how will they ever get over the nagging thoughts? hmm i just realised this isnt my fear and perhaps i can find some explanations, but im too scared :s i just want to be satisfield with my own understanding because if i go out and try and find out and figure it all out im worried it may do more harm then good., then cause more nagging thoughts and i may never get off the rollercoaster.

Nagging thoughts, what if thoughts, spinning thoughts, or stinkin thinkin, yes we all have these thoughts at one time or another. It is when the thoughts take over our lives that we need to really look fear in the eye and walk through it.
