answer is yes it is time to start acting action can be the best cure for your worry as soon as you draw a plan how you will be solving this problem your anxiety will immediately subside well in case your answer was negative and you have no power over the situation there is nothing else left to do than to accept it and move on what is the probability that my worry will become true if it is something that is very likely to happen well you have all the rights to feel nervous however if you truthfully admit to yourself that there is a very slim chance of your worry becoming true just let it go why kill your nerve cells over something that is unlikely to happen how bad is the thing you worry about try to imagine the worst outcome of your problem after doing this in 90% of cases you will realize that in fact the perspective doesn't really look that gloomy so if you decide your worry won't lead to a disaster it will help you to get rid of it while answering these questions think
