I have a circumstance of being audited. The worst case is that I may have to pay $20k. Who knows if that will happen, I have to wait for the decision to be made.
I am feeling worried and fear, I know the thoughts causing it. I also know my higher up thoughts about the situation, such as “I know we will be fine regardless of the outcome.”
However, I am still feeling worried. The worry isn’t a problem, I just don’t like how I keep ruminating about the what-ifs.
Is this a situation where I should just allow the feeling of worry, acknowledge it and continue on with my day understanding that the worry may come along and that’s okay?
I think I keep trying to “change” the worry by focusing on my “no matter what we will be fine” thought but when I think that my brain throws the worry thoughts back at me.
