I am really nervous and struggling to sleep at the thought of my test on Friday. Have been feeling confident up until now. My anxiety keeps thinking what if

We all will at some point think these 'What If' thoughts.

For example, whilst I was out running near my area this evening, incoming scenarios aka 'day dreaming' occurred to me, whereby the state of focus leaves the external world and begins primarily focusing on the mental. The scenario, translated into words, said:

"What if I was robbed from the back of the potential van (I'm intrigued by the idea of motorhomes) I may or may not own in the future?"
And so did I mentally enact how I would respond whilst I continued running in the physical world.

While the mind may summon definitive memories, It's safe to say that our mind also summons potentialities. It tells us 'What if' all the time. But, Importantly, is your 'What if' circumstance, a reflection of your true reality?...

Why am I feeling this way?...
Could you have practiced more? If yes: Then my mental worry can disintegrate due to a false projection of current reality because I have indeed prepared myself at my maximum! I am ready to conquer my test tomorrow after sunrise!
If not: I'll have to face the consequences of not preparing myself as best to my knowledge, but also not beating down on myself for not doing so, but forgiving oneself to better oneself in the long-haul, and applying and developing a new action plan for next time.

The attached mental model will provide perspective.

I hope I've helped / Lennon
