There is such a famous psychotherapist Frankl, who proposed a method of paradoxical intentions for the treatment of phobias. Within the framework of this technique, a patient with, for example, a certain phobia, is offered a paradoxical attempt to desire what he is most afraid of. It can be an object, action or situation in which the patient is very afraid to be.

One of the examples given by the author of the method is the case of a young doctor who was experiencing a strong fear of sweating. As soon as a young man began to fear that he would sweat, he immediately sweated profusely. A vicious circle ensued: the fear of sweating generated an even more intense sweating response. To break the vicious circle that has arisen, the psychotherapist recommended the following to the young doctor: every time he begins to sweat, deliberately try to demonstrate to others how well he can do it. Now, whenever he met someone who gave him the anticipatory anxiety of sweating, he would say to himself, " I used to only sweat a quart, but now I will sweat for at least ten quarts !" As a result, after one session, a patient who suffered from this phobia for ten years was freed from it forever within a week.

It depends on what it is about, if this is really nonsense, then be more decisive, it is indecision that generates fear! But there are times when fear is helpful, such as doing life-threatening things. In general, there are pros and cons, but depending on what it is about!
