When I’m worried about something I have several strategies. One of them is to ask,
“What’s the worst thing that could happen?” Then I ask, “And what would I do then?”
And then I make a plan. So I am facing the worst case head on instead of trying not to think about it, and if I’m prepared for it then it’s not so frightening. And of course, the worst rarely happens.
