Why are we so afraid of the future?
By Laura Seitz-WaldThe future is uncertain.
We don’t know what it will be like.
But we know it will not be a good time to be a human being.
And that makes me so sad.
I think we’re in a world where we are afraid to think for ourselves.
We are afraid that there will be too much information and too much uncertainty.
We’re afraid of being caught off guard by a virus or a natural disaster.
We fear being overwhelmed by a social media meltdown.
We’ve been through the worst of times in our lives.
Now we’re going to the best of times.
It seems like we’re ready for a new world.
And, frankly, we are.
We have been through some very dark times.
But the past decade or so has shown us the way forward.
We see that our current economic system is not sustainable.
We know that climate change is a reality.
And we know that the world is becoming more dangerous as more and more people and resources are being used to fuel the growth of our industrial economy.
It’s just a matter of time before a new crisis comes along.
And as the economic crisis continues to worsen, our governments are being forced to make tough decisions.
But the best thing we can do right now is not worry about the future.
We can continue to think about the things that are important to us right now, like our jobs, our families, our communities, our pets, our food, and our health.

The best thing is to find out who you are and what you want and how you can best be of service to others.
And don’t be afraid to be honest with yourself.
When you are in a crisis, just ask yourself:What can I do to help people?
What are the best things I can do for my family?
What can I say to make them feel good?
What is important to me?
What should I do?
When you are feeling overwhelmed, you may be overwhelmed by thoughts of how to make things better, or how to help others.
It may seem that your life is just a series of numbers on a computer screen.
But it’s not.
The most important thing is not how much you can do or how much money you have, but how you feel.
You may be frustrated by a life that is filled with challenges.
You may feel overwhelmed by the uncertainty and lack of direction in your life.
You might be feeling discouraged by the thought that you don’t have much time left to make a difference.
You can be overwhelmed.
You should be.
But what we can all do to create more meaningful, positive, and caring relationships is to understand ourselves and our relationships better.
We need to be more aware of the fact that the way we act and what we say can be really important in our relationships.
We know that our behaviors can be a huge factor in our emotional well-being.
We also know that being mindful of our emotions can help us cope with stress better.
If we understand what is important in a relationship, we can help make better decisions about our relationship.
But when we are constantly reacting to the past and trying to figure out what we want, what we feel good about, and how we are going to get through a difficult situation, it can be difficult to make those decisions.
If you feel like you are experiencing a lot of stress and want to talk about it, talk to a crisis intervention counselor.
They can help you understand the different ways you can handle that stress, and help you identify and work through the issues that are really affecting you.
You don’t want to be left feeling overwhelmed.
We all know that feeling overwhelmed can be tough.
And it is.
But if you can manage that, you can find ways to manage your stress better and be happier in the long run.
