Quote of the Month
"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.
Think about it. Has avoiding what makes you anxious made the fear say "bye bye"? Or has avoiding what you fear made the fear say, "Hey pal, nice to see you again"?
