What Needs To Change
No one was born with a shy bladder. Did you have a problem peeing when you needed to as a baby or a toddler? Of course you didn’t, you would go whenever you needed no matter where you were or who was with you. So that means your thoughts have changed somewhere along your lifeline from one of natural freedom to fear and phobia. Conversely, to rectify the issue then all you have to do is change them back to the way they used to be. And, as we’ve established, whilst people can help you with this in various ways and with various forms of supporting therapy, the only person who can change those thoughts is YOU.
Think About Your Thoughts
Think about your thoughts. This may be a hard statement to get your head around but give it a try. When you next need to pee and those shy bladder ripples start building into waves and ultimately a tsunami of terror think about your thoughts. What comes to mind, what are you thinking about, is it being scrutinised, judged, talked about? Whatever comes to mind write it down or consider is it rational (glass half full) or irrational (glass half empty)? Is it the same thoughts that arise each time and hence a consistency? Very often there is and so it becomes obvious which thoughts you need to change. And change them you can. Sure, it may not be immediate, it’s going to take time. Just as your shy bladder developed and worsened over time as your irrational thoughts became more and more real so the opposite is true – it’s going to be a gradual process of reversal back to rational thoughts.
Take The Help
You may think I’m suggesting that there’s no point in therapy or treatments if the only person who can change perception is you. Not at all – help is out there so take it. You can do it yourself but the professional therapists, hypnotherapists, books and support programs are there to help you every step of the way so you might as well take advantage and make life easier for yourself. Examine all the different options, see what “feels right” to you and give it a try. If it doesn’t help try a different way but keep going and keep believing that you CAN change your thoughts and hence change your life and give your bladder its confidence back!
