5. It Can Help You Cope with Anxiety and Insecurity
At its core, magical thinking is just another form of faith in a higher power. For some people this faith comes from religion, for others it comes from magic and supernatural powers in the universe. But no matter what the source of your believe may be, having that faith provides an outlet for coping with anxiety, stress and fear. It gives you something to turn to when you aren’t sure how your life will turn out or you aren’t sure what will happen in your future. It may offer mystical explanations, traditions and superstitions, but magical thinking also provides confidence and comfort so that you can feel more like you are in charge of your life, and less helpless about your fate.
