You probably fear as though your whole world is going to come crumbling down upon you, eh, grizun?
See my signature. It's the best way I have found to deal with both founded and unfounded fears. However, there are a multitude of concepts and philosophies that I have also been exposed to and learned that help. One concept is to know what things we can and can't be in control of.
I'd like to illustrate this control concept with a story that happened to me in April 1979:
I was 22 years old, unmarried, living in a nice little apartment in Anomaly, had just gotten my EMT, was working with the Volunteer Emergency Corp, made money as a delivery driver for a kitchen cabinet company, and was taking classes at Larry and Curly Community College. All in all, I was alright by myself, working at jobs I liked, unattached, dating, and doing what I wanted to do.
Then, it happened: The world was predicted to end. All the solar system's planets were to line up on one side of the sun. This sort of thing happened only every 186,000 years. There would be catastrophic weather changes- hurricanes, earthquakes, tidal waves, volcanoes erupting. Television and radio transmissions would become impossible. The sun would be blotted out. There would be famines, pain, and death. Some foretold the second coming of Christ.
I was scared! My world was going to come crumbling down upon me!
As was my habit, I went out to my parents' house one particular Sunday for a visit. I found my Dad in his garden on this bright, warm, early spring morning, planting potatoes. I told him of all the literature I had read on the predicted end of the world. I'm sure I was very animated and dramatic as I described all the forebodings, but Dad listened intently, leaning on his shovel.
At the end of my address on Armageddon, this conversation took place:
Then, my Dad went back to his work, planting potatoes.
You see, my Dad allowed me to experience an illuminating revelation that day through his words and actions: Dad had no power to stop the end of the world, so he may as well do what he set out to do- enjoy his work and his life.
And really, it all comes down to that- enjoying our work and our life, taking control of those things we can, and doing the best job we can with what we can.
The very best to you, grizun!
