Replace Fear-Based Thinking with Love-Based Thinking

Posted on September 9, 2018

"Replace fear-based thinking with love-based thinking. Every time you're making a choice, ask yourself if it's going to cultivate the experience of unity and love or the experience of separation and stress." – Deepak Chopra

We all experience fear. When it comes to living with a chronic condition like epilepsy, fear can manifest in many ways.

Sometimes our initial diagnosis gives us fears about our quality of life. Dealing with the realities of our "new normal," with epilepsy can put us in a chronically fearful state of mind. Will I have a flare today? Will I be able to attend to my daily tasks seizure-free? Fear about outcomes that are beyond our control can facilitate fear taking root.

"I finally came to realize that my fears about having epilepsy and what that could potentially mean were ADDING to my pain. Once I consciously decided to relieve myself of that burden I could better focus on managing my epilepsy." – Member of MyEpilepsyTeam
