Constant Feeling of Impending Doom

Updated on August 28, 2010

Constantly Feeling of Impending Doom

What is this feeling of thinking that something bad is going to happen? Are you always thinking and feeling that doom is ahead? The constant feeling of impending doom, in the Bible is called an “evil foreboding.” Now before you close the article thinking you’re about to be evangelized by one of those Bible-thumping believers…read on. Please. There are plenty of reasons why plenty of people today are going around with this feeling that something bad is going to happen. The feeling overall is based in fear. Fear has been described as “False Evidence Appearing Real.” O.k., now you’re thinking I’m a self-help nut that wants you to believe that the universe has something good in store for you. Well none of the above. In this article I would like to give you some probable causes as to why you are always feeling that there is impending doom up ahead. The truth is that today in our society, we are being bombarded on the T.V. and the internet and even with chatter at work and in passing about all of the bad and terrible things that are happening in our world. Believe it or not, seeing, hearing and reading about these things at the rate and to the degree that we are, will and does definitely begin to affect us internally-what we believe and what we feel. We have to begin to guard ourselves against “the information of the age.” We have to become more discriminating about what we read, who we talk to and so forth. No, I’m not talking about locking yourself in a room and becoming a hermit. I am just saying that this is one way to deal with that impending feeling of doom that you’ve been experiencing.

Another reason for this feeling is just simply having a negative disposition. Maybe you were raised in a home where everyone or at least those whom you looked up to were always talking negatively about the future. In that case you have some tearing down and rebuilding to do. Tear down those old thought patterns and replace them with new ones. This is easier said than done because it takes some time to really get to a place where you have replaced old thought patterns but it is doable. At the end of the day, having a constant feeling of impending doom is a sort of distraction. It is distracting you from what is going on in life in the here and now. Stop worrying about the future, prepare for it as best as you can but beyond that, live! Live in the here and now. Whatever you have been thinking would happened, has not happened yet, thus proving that you have no psychic abilities and do not have to concern yourself with those nagging, negative thoughts floating through your mind. Get on with life!
