Fears melt away

Most of the things you fear will quickly start to melt away as soon as you turn and face them. Move toward your fears and you’ll be amazed to see that they grow smaller with each determined step you take.

If you run from your fears, you only give more power to them. If you hide from your fears, you make them even stronger. It is only by facing those fears that you will finally be rid of them. Learn what your fears have to teach you, and they will no longer be able to control you or to hold you back.

What is it that you fear the most? Admit it to yourself, then turn and face that fear.

Facing your fears is never easy. Yet it is very much worth the effort. The fears you face will vanish as a result. And the strength you gain will be with you always.
