Embracing Nervousness: A Natural Part of Our Lives

What makes you nervous?

As humans, we all experience moments of nervousness, particularly when faced with an uncertain future. The causes of nervousness may vary from person to person, but it’s safe to say that very few people can completely avoid feeling nervous at times.

However, nervousness is not inherently negative. In fact, it’s a natural talent that has helped protect and preserve our lives throughout history. In ancient times, those who were brave often faced dangers and perished. For example, someone who confidently went out to hunt a mammoth might have been the first to be devoured by a tiger or another wild animal.

Consequently, our ancestors who felt nervousness and the desire to avoid such dangers used their intelligence to overcome formidable foes that they couldn’t physically compete with.

Thus, they survived and passed on these instincts to future generations. It’s important to recognize and face our nervousness as necessary challenges in our lives. By reevaluating and understanding our fears, we can use them to our advantage and continue the legacy of our ancestors.

As for my personal nervousness? Today, it’s about not being late for work… Quite nerve-wracking, indeed.
