“When people panic, they make mistakes.”
When the first astronauts were sent to space, they were trained in the “art” of not panicking. When people panic they ignore procedures, they deviate from the plan. They just react, without thinking clearly, and usually in an irresponsible way. Fears mostly come from unfamiliarity, but with enough exposure to similar situations, we can raise our tolerance for stress and uncertainty.
When we get free of disturbances and perturbations, we can focus our energy on solving problems, rather than reacting to them. Our emotional reactions can’t change the conditions of the situation; they are unhelpful and destructive.
Many can say “But it’s what I feel.”. Of course, we can show our emotions and cry, but we cannot lie to ourselves and say that it will help solve the problem. These are two different issues.
