Sometimes we accidently let our minds run off with unwanted issues we need to deal with...making them more stressful/scary than they may be.The more we focus on the negative (what if's) & assume negative (reactions), the more it affects us negatively. CALM your mind. YOU CAN take charge of it calmly, peacefully, LEAD interactions & affect outcomes through YOUR behavior, words & actions. Stay in positive control of your mind. Aim to enter it in as relaxed state as you can.
Don't assume it will be negative, worse than you think or that you won't be in control. Plan to be calm before hand & relax beforehand. Many times you will realize after, "It wasn't so bad!". Have faith in yourself. You can handle it. :) (from Simply Positive)
