"Every time we choose safety, we reinforce fear" - Cheri Huber
Yes, every time we choose safety over facing a fear it makes the fear grow larger and keeps it around.
There are a number of false beliefs that perpetuate anxiety. The belief that avoiding what you fear keeps you safe is one of the biggest false beliefs. In reality, avoidance only serves to make anxiety your more frequent companion - even if it is a relief for the moment.
