Women and men are from different planets. Even women’s fears differ significantly from those of men: they are more diverse and not confined to carrier or potency. Moreover, some of the things that lead men into a state of wild enthusiasm, force us dying of fright.
Thin and beautiful are afraid more often!
We are all afraid of something, but women are afraid more often than men - about one third against one fourth, and thin and beautiful women fear more than full and unattractive.
Number 1. Fear of unplanned pregnancy
British scientists composed a top 100 of women’s fears. And not surprisingly, leaders are not spiders and snakes, but … fear of unplanned pregnancy.
Fighting this fear can be only one way, alas, psychological techniques will not help - just find a suitable method of contraception. Even if all «already has happened», you always have 120 hours in stock to rectify the situation.
Number 2. Fear of falling ill
All women without exception fear diseases. American Society of Women’s Health Research found out health problems women are afraid most of all. The majority (22%) of women fear cancer, despite the fact that women fall ill with cancer less often than men.
Regular visits to physicians can help fighting this fear.
Number 3. Fear of losing a man
Earlier a woman was nothing without a man. Over time, man moved to the level of absolute values. So during all her adult life, a woman is just worrying: first, whether there is a worthy companion, and later, whether he would abandon her.
Fighting this fear is a great pleasure - just love yourself first, and then men. Be legible, do not be afraid to make demands of men! Otherwise, they will consider themselves the center of the universe, and you - a free enclosure.
Fear of filling stations
German scientists found a place where emancipation ends. At a gas station, men fall into a state of delight - they think that filling «smells» with adventure and technology. Women, by contrast, believe that they are solely in «male kingdom», in the men’s world with its laws. At filling stations, women often feel lost and helpless.
Number 4. Fear of losing beauty and attraction
This fear is closely linked with fear of old age and fear of losing a man.
In the struggle to preserve beauty any means are useful, first of all - money. Residents of Saudi Arabia leave more than half a billion dollars annually in plastic surgery clinics, taking third place in the world, after Morocco and Poland as for expenses on improving exterior through surgical means.
Number 5. Fear of overweight
Oddly, as a rule, women of normal build are afraid of gaining weight. They turn to nutritionists, buy slimming pills, and starve themselves. . .
Fighting this fear is possible only after realization that presence or absence of excess weight is not a guaranteed solution for your psychological problems.
Number 6. Fear for children
First, we are afraid to give birth and then listen to a baby’s breathing with dismay and worry whom he will become, his education, influence of bad company. As a rule, all mothers fear for their children, regardless of how many years a child is.
Fighting this fear is possible only with the aid of logic: you were once a baby, and then grew all the same. If this idea does not work, then we can proceed differently: Rather than stop being afraid, be afraid consciously! Find about 10-15 minutes a day and force yourself thinking about the source of concern. This helps to gather and redirect your attention to the implementation of urgent cases.
Most importantly, remember that each woman is entitled to her little weaknesses, and psychiatrists agree with this view: an absence of any anxiety and fear is a sign of disease. So fearing to some extent is not bad …
