Fear of Time

Fears. I have a few. Some silly. Some out of my control. Some valid. There are fears we can overcome. Others are hard to break.

One fear I’ve come to realise over the past few weeks is about Time. More to the fact of running out of it. Maybe that’s where my stress and anxiety over the future comes from.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted things now. If only I could just snap my fingers and it appears in front of me. I’ve wished it be a time in the future.

There are times when my mind goes 100 miles an hour. To the point, I find it hard to function. I’ve got all of the things I need or want to do but I can’t seem to do anything to get the list smaller. When I’m unable to start or complete something in the time I thought it would. I get frustrated and beat myself up about it. Mentally, not physically.

This certainly isn’t the best way to go about things. Time and I need to become friends. Figuring out how to overcome the fear of time. Is one I’m not sure how to go about. Have you any advice or blog posts I could read?

The only thing I can think of right now is to choose one thing to focus on each day. Try to get closure to completing that task. If I do other things as well, great. If not, think “it’s ok, I will get it done. Today is not the day for it.”

Is there another mindset I should have?

I can do everything. Just not right now – Molly Mahar
