If You Have A Fear Of Driving Over Bridges, You Can Use These Tips To Overcome It
We cannot go any place without having to travel over a bridge at some point or another. In some locations, these bridges can be huge and even a few miles long. The good news is that you don’t have to continue to suffer from this phobia. Here are a few simple tips to help you overcome your phobia once and for all.
You have to realize that you don’t have a fear of driving over bridges, you have a fear that the bridge will suddenly give way and fall while you are on it. This basic understanding changes your perspective of your fear and helps to lay the ground work for you to be able to overcome it. In fact, you aren’t even afraid of it collapsing. You are afraid of dieing or drowning if it does, not the actual collapse itself.
This is understandable, especially if we are talking about one of those types that are hundreds of feet off of the water, and miles upon miles long. However, think about it for a moment, and you will very quickly realize that there is no reason to have anxiety at all. When is the last time you heard of a collapse without being involved in an earth quake, tornado, flood, or some other natural disaster?
Also, consider how many thousands of vehicles travel that road daily without any of them falling into the water for any reason at all. Realistically, the chances of a bridge falling into the water are much, much less likely than your chances of falling in the shower and harming yourself.
Our advice is to stop focusing on the negative and focus on the positive. There is some incredibly beautiful scenery to experience while traveling across some of these locations. It is absolutely breathe taking if you take the time to enjoy it. The problem is that you are often times far to focused on your phobia, and not open to what is around you in order to enjoy it.
Let go and open up. Allow yourself to focus on the beauty of everything around you instead of focusing on the negative aspects of where you are. Chances are that you might actually find some peace and calmness by looking around and enjoying what you see.
The third piece of advice is a little bit direct, and I don’t mean to offend anyone, or even scare anyone, however, one of the biggest problems for people in the world is control. We need to feel a sense of control at all times, and your fear of driving over bridges is no different. Let go of your need to be in control, or at least believe you are, and things begin to become easier to deal with. You don’t have to be afraid anymore.
The reality of things in life is that we have absolutely no control over most things. A bridge you are on falling into the water is one of those things. Being afraid of it won’t make it happen, and it won’t stop it from happening either. So why be afraid of something you have absolutely no control over? It’s similar to being afraid that it could rain any day now and cause severe flooding. You have no control over it, so stressing about it won’t make any difference.
The only thing that will come about from any of that, is that you will be miserable at the end of it all. Let go, and stop worrying about it. There is no need to fear those things you have no control over.
