How to Stop, Drop, and Roll with Your Inner Fear

  1. Stop fueling the flames of fear.

    The first step in conquering your inner fear is recognizing when it's taking hold of your thoughts and emotions.

    Fear often manifests in catastrophic thinking or worst-case scenarios, leaving you powerless.

    But you can interrupt this cycle by consciously choosing to stop fueling the fear. Instead of dwelling on what could go wrong, focus on what you can control in the present moment.

    Say to yourself: I refuse to let fear dictate my actions and decisions today. I am a fearless warrior of grace and love.

  2. Drop the need for certainty.

    We all cling to the illusion of certainty, believing that we can protect ourselves from harm if we know the answers.

    But here’s your truth in the name of love: trying to control every outcome leads to frustration and anxiety.

    It's time to embrace uncertainty as a natural part of life and release the need to have all the answers. Embrace the unknown with curiosity and openness, knowing that it is in your moments of vulnerability that you discover your true strength.

  3. Roll into courage and resilience.

    Now that you've stopped feeding the fear and dropped the need for certainty, it's time to roll into courage and resilience.

    Engage in activities that will cultivate self-love. Whether you meditate, spend time in nature, paint, draw, write, or dance to express your emotions, prioritize self-care.

    Remember: Bravery isn't about being fearless but facing your fears despite your doubts. 

Learning to stop, drop, and roll with your inner fear is a journey of self-discovery and empowerment. By recognizing when fear arises, embracing uncertainty, and cultivating courage and resilience, you can confront your fears and emerge stronger, braver, and more resilient than ever. 

Until next time, remember that you can overcome any fear that stands in your way.

All it takes is one person in the relationship to stop, drop, and roll to smother the flames. Then, when it’s time, you’ll return to the conversation feeling inner-centered, emotionally balanced, and ready to invite conversation. 

In the meantime, if the flames are getting hot and you'd like help putting them out, wives, I’m here for you. Or, if you’d like help as a couple, click here.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"As a result of working with Veronica, I live in peace without anxiety or panic. I love where I live, and I work out and have taken pride in the healthy meals I prepare for myself. Veronica is the only person who has helped me achieve any lasting results. It’s been nearly 2 years since our first session and I am feeling so stable and at-peace. I cannot recommend her enough, as she changed my life."

- Happy Client

"My marriage was in shambles and I felt like I had hit rock bottom. I was desperate for a solution that didn't involve medication. My husband refused to go to therapy with me, which left me feeling hopeless. We were constantly fighting and didn't know how to break the cycle. Since Veronica came into my life, my family is in a much better place. I no longer take my husband's behavior personally, and we're able to enjoy each other's company. I hear my kids giggle every day, and it fills me with joy. I'm forever grateful for Veronica's guidance and support."

- Forever Grateful

On the brink of divorce, we had tried therapy and it didn’t work. Our marriage was a roller coaster and I felt emotionally drained every day. When I got pregnant I had to do something because I didn’t want to bring my baby into our hot mess. Veronica diagnosed was was going on in our first session! My husband and I have helped each other heal so much in our sessions with Veronica. We are a team now and it feels so good to have our son being born into a peaceful home.

- Happy Couple
