Don’t be discouraged if your fears start creeping back. This can happen from time to time, especially when you’re stressed out (for example, during final exams or after moving to a new home). This is totally normal. It just means you need to start planning some exposure exercises to knock your fears back down again.
Pull out your fear ladders and re-rate the items on the fear scale. Begin with the situation that causes you mild anxiety and start re-entering that situation or facing that thing. You can beat back your anxiety again! Remember that coping with anxiety is a lifelong process and it gets easier over time.
