I have this weird habit of listening to others story and thinking what if it happens to me and how would I handle the situation. Say someone says they took medication for anxiety I will be like probably I should also be taking only then I’ll be fine. But I would already be handling it well but since I feel since someone has done it I should also do since that will work and I can’t do it myself. Another example is say someone met with accident I will be what if it happens to me I will start thinking about how to drive safely etc
It’s like I’m stealing others stories (esp negative ones ) for myself and chose not to believe in my story 🙂 Help me with some thoughts to overcome this.
