Why do we become paralyzed by the fear of impending humiliation or the fear of the "unknown"?

I couldn't finish my requirement because I feel like I'm not ready to do it. I felt like I needed more rice to eat before I am able to finish my final requirement. I feel so overwhelmed.

    Feeling that you don’t have enough information to make accurate predictions can cause your anxiety to rise. One way to counteract the lack of predictability is to get more information

    For example, if you’re experiencing fear of the unknown related to a new school or neighborhood, you might consider exploring the area before your move. You can make in-person or online scouting expeditions to find out more about what your new life will be like.
