Basements. Bears. Guns.
You could say that these are fears of mine. Not debilitating, irrational fears or anything...but definitely things that can make my blood pressure rise if the situation is right (or wrong depending on how you look at it).
Lately though, I would say that "the future" has taken over the #1 spot. Like maybe being stuck in a basement with a bear would be okay compared to what the future may hold? This is new territory for me. I have always had a positive outlook on the future. I've worried about it, sure. But actually feared it? Never.
Next week I start transitioning into a new role at work. A role that I have spent the last several years working towards. A role that will take me out of my comfort zone of corporate finance. And I was excited about it for 3 days...before I got the call that flipped my entire world upside down. Talk about emotional roller-coaster. Now all I feel is fear creeping in and slowly taking over.
How do you tackle the unknown? At work? At home? I need a safe space. A familiar space. A comfortable space. And I don't have it. For once I don't feel like I have a plan or any control.
I'm scared. I'm sad. I'm full of fear.
