Fear of everything.

There really isn't much to say, the title explains it all. Ever since I started at my new school I've been afraid. I had so much confidence before, I felt like the king of the world. I really did, now I feel like the dirt that the king walks on. I feel pathetic, demoralized, and weak. I physically find myself hideous and I am always the silent one, when I talk I am questioned and I hate confrontation. I sit in the corner of class. Aside from the school, I cannot control my thoughts which lead to even worse fear. I cannot think straight. It scares me beyond all reason, every hour or so I see myself dying.

My parents do not care, and would not understand even if they did care. I am 13 in 7th grade in Middle School, and I have no way of overcoming this from my sight. I cannot go to my psychiatrist because my father believes he'll just tell me what I 'already know'. Can someone please share some insight on this subject? I've never opened up like this. And I would love some help and or advice.

Fear of everything.

You are not the only person in the world suffering from these fears, a lot of other people are too and even people who appear confident on appearance can also suffer these fears as well.
Concentrate on what you do well and find someone else who also feels the way you do and help them to discover what they also do well.
What about your school counsellor, can they help and or some sympathetic teacher who can spend a few minutes to give you some encouragement and help or a relative who knows just how you feel. You do not need a psychiatrist, all you need is someone you can talk to.

Fear and failure

Thank you for contacting Positive Personal Growth. Deep inside you are still the happy confident person you have always been, but somehow for some reason, you have had an untrue thought that you have allowed to be planted inside your mind. You have started to think about this thought, and the more you have dwelt on it the bigger and worse it has become until it has taken over your life, sapped all the confidence from you and now you live in fear.

You now believe that you are this changed fearful person, when in truth you aren't. You have to change your self talk, change the thoughts you have about yourself back to "I am confident" "I am happy" "I enjoy speaking with people".

I think you understand that you are causing all your own fear, and when you believe you can change you are going to be able to, but you have to change your mind pattern to positive thinking about yourself. This will not be easy, because fear tends to sink deep in our minds, but fear truly is only a thought. One that you let into your mind and allowed to grow out of proportion.

Your subconscious believes everything you tell it. When you think all those horrible things about yourself they become your truth because the subconscious cannot tell the difference between the truth and a lie. This should bring you hope, because if you can start feeding some good information about yourself, in time your subconscious will change its programming to believe what it is hearing.

If you can stay determined and strong, become definite in your goal to change your way of thinking, you will change how you are and become a happy confident person. Trust me on this!

It may also be an idea to speak to an adult that you feel you could open up to, sometimes sharing a problem is halving it.

Good luck, you can do this, I know you can.
