What Is The Solution If You Often Feel Fear Made From Yourself?
Hello doctor, I am a 12th grade high school student who is only 16 years old. I often feel scared. like today, today I did not go to school because I was sick, but my friend did not believe if I was really sick, from that morning the questions in my brain kept popping up, like scaring me. even though I also know that the one asking me these kinds of things is myself. many questions were like this: what if because of not going to school, my friends so far again like at that time ?, what if the teachers talk about me again like that time because it was rarely so school ?, what if my friends my seat don’t want to be my friend again like that time? so if the question from my mind was there. When I was in semester one, I rarely went to school, because I was stressed by my parents who often quarreled and because I was also anemic. At that time, my friend was out of control so I kept quiet and kept away from me, I just didn’t want that to happen again tomorrow. so, how do I get rid of the questions that frighten myself? because I’ve tried to think of other things so I can forget, but just keep thinking. thanks.

Negative thinking or negative thinking is the formation of opinions that are not necessarily with the reality that always adorns one's mind or statement. The longer a person makes a habit of thinking negatively, the more accustomed to someone to form opinions and opinions that are stored or expressed, making it more difficult for people who agree to prevent and avoid them, unless the person concerned tries harder to prevent and eliminate the habit, even though it takes time to get rid of it and adjust to form negative thoughts.
Some things that can trigger negative thinking are
1. golden or worry
2. lack of confidence
3. Experiencing a traumatic or painful situation
4. past experience
5. high or excessive desire and will
6. less accept reality with sincerity
If these complaints are increasingly disturbing or increasingly affecting one's daily life, it is necessary to consult directly with a mental health doctor or psychologist for interviews, physical examinations, and psychiatric examinations. The results of the examination will be the basis for the doctor to provide direction and input for the patient.
In connection with your question, if your mind is always overwhelmed with anxiety and worry so as to form negative thoughts, then this will not help you to reduce the habit of negative thinking and reduce your worries that are not necessarily the truth. So it is better you still do not give up and keep trying to control this condition.
Some things you need to identify the trigger and some things you need to consider to control this negative thought, such as:
1. stop negative thinking immediately and be confronted with positive thinking
2. convey your thoughts to people close to you, so that helps you be more calm and relaxed
3. Divert negative thinking with positive social and or religious activities
4. accept all the painful pasts, so you are better prepared for all the possibilities you face
5. avoid sleeping late so as to prevent your psychological weakening of whatever you face every day
6. do regular exercise
However, if you have not been able to control this complaint independently, then you should consult with a mental health specialist or psychologist as described above.
