Everything you are running away from is in your head. If you don’t learn how to face your fear it will grip your mind, body, and spirit. It will wage a war against you and your dreams.
Fears can not survive if they are not constantly fed. Starve them, just look fear in the face with calmness and it will melt away automatically. If one tries to fight fear it actually gets fed by the ensuing logic and internal mental debate. Just let fear be there and look at it impassionately and it will melt away. It can be as simple as saying to yourself – “At this moment I am afraid that … ” and stop thinking there and see how fear automatically disappears.
