I have been getting a close look at some of the things that scare me this week, and one of them is being at all controversial. I am the type of person who is happiest when everyone agrees. And yet I keep finding myself getting drawn down paths that are ... controversial, or at least, are not in the general mainstream.
My editor liked my article, I believe it's true myself, and I have had good responses, eg. from you and Kelly on here. And yet as soon as it was posted (no turning back) with my name on it for all to see, ... I started getting anxious. What if somebody disagrees? What if somebody wants to argue with me about it?
I've had two comments posted to my article on empowher so far and each time I get a notification about one, I get really anxious. Not sure what I'm scared of, being told I'm full of crap I guess.
Both of those comments have been fine, but I get nervous anyway.
So I guess I better use what I know about psychoneuroimmunology and start sending confident messages to my own self, right?
Thanks, Dan and Kelly, for making that easier to do.
