    Default Nervousness

    Why do we feel nervous?

    If we feel nervous about something does that mean that that something is really important to us, or is it just a general fear of the unknown or the unpredictable?

    Would blind confidence make the feeling of nervousness go away?

    I feel nervous because my brain has decided that everyone and everything in the world is terrible and that I should exist in an eternal puddle of sweat and gnawed fragments once resembling fingernails

    I'm nervous all the time for the silliest reasons

    I have no idea what I would do with myself if I ever stopped feeling this way, but I want to find out

    That's horrible.

    I don't feel nervous all that often but that's probably because I'm pretty good at avoiding situations that make me nervous.

    But there are times when I can't avoid it and I have to put it all on the line and that nervous feeling I get is dreadful.

    I think it happens when something is both very important to me AND I don't know what to expect.

    I want to learn how to not feel nervous, if possible.

    I can't imagine living like that all the time or it coming on for silly reasons. I hope you find out how to ease that. Maybe little by little so it's not too sudden.

    I don't usually feel nervous, but if I ever am, it's usually because there would be something important on the line.
