Fear of change can be debilitating. It can create stagnation in reaching goals, hinder new relationships, and cause isolation. Learning to understand your fears will help you to be able to work through those fears. Working with a mental health professional can help you explore your fears on a deeper level. Here are a few suggestions to get you started as you begin your healing journey.

Start Small

When you fear something, that fear has the ability to disrupt your daily life. It can be extremely hard and even frightening to face any fear you are experiencing. Try to start small. Form small goals that can lead to great progress.

Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone

When you can step outside of your comfort zone, you can begin to work on facing your fears. Start by understanding what you fear and then take a step towards it. Finding the strength and bravery to face your fears will impact every area of your life.

Find Support

Having a solid support system around you as you work on your mental health issues and overall well-being is essential. Everyone needs to feel supported. Everyone also needs to feel as if they belong in a group or society with people they consider equals. Discover who you feel safe with and open up to them about your fears and struggles. They can help you find the courage to step outside of your comfort zone and face your struggles head-on.

Celebrate Your Successes

Facing your fear of change is challenging. Celebrate when you successfully face a fear, conquer a challenge, or meet a goal. When you reward yourself for your accomplishments, it will help you acknowledge your successes and congratulate yourself on your progress. Establish rewards when you create your goals. Those rewards will help you push through challenging days when you begin to doubt your abilities.

Acknowledging that you fear change is a significant first step in working through that fear. Start small and celebrate all of your successes. You may also find having a solid support system in place helps you to step outside of your comfort zone.
