We all have things that we fear. For each of us this is different.
Many people are afraid of spiders, snakes, the dentist, the list goes on and on.
It is what we do, our experiences that shape our fears.
But we cannot go through life without facing the situations that bring on these fears.
And without facing them, we will never overcome them.
This is not to say that if you are afraid of spiders, that you should immerse yourself in a swarm of them, but little by little it is possible to overcome your fears to a level that makes you more comfortable.
Take baby steps, challenge yourself a little more each time.
Learn that even though you feel fear, you are still strong enough to deal with the situation.
Before you know it, you will be ousting that spider from the bath (under a glass, of course) or sitting in the dentist's chair and having work done.
Facing our fears and overcoming them makes us proud of our strength, makes us feel happier and more secure without the constant fear of failure.
So face those fears, tackle them head on, little by little. And little by little, you will conquer them.
