So I find it so intriguing that, especially in the workplace we keep these fears to ourselves, further fueling their fire.
Uncertainty is uncomfortable, but when you add fear to the equation you can begin traversing down the path of unbearable. This is something you need not do. When you speak about your fear it helps you to provide balance by adding back in the factual components. All this is to say, why torture yourself? Talk to somebody.
