Actually, and unfortunately, this fear is almost universal among the nervous. However, this fear is also unjustified because anxiety does not cause insanity.
No part of anxiety can make you crazy, even if you sit around thinking that insanity is imminent.
What I want to share with you is that you think that you’re going to go nuts not because you are, but because you’re under a lot of stress.
This in turn causes a great deal of worry and introspection. But that’s about it. The fear of insanity is the end of the road for the stressed out, the confused, and the fatigued.
It’s understandable why an anxious person could develop this kind of idea. In some ways it’s natural and to be expected.
But I want to assure you that this terrible fear you have will not come true.
I wrote about this back in 2008, but I never produced a podcast about this important topic, so the other day I sat down and recorded my thoughts on this issue. I hope that if you’re afraid of going crazy that you take a listen.
In this podcast I discuss:
— My own experiences with the fear of insanity.
— Why people develop this phobia.
— How to get rid of it.
