I Have Accepted Fear…

“I have accepted fear as a part of life-specifically fear of change…

I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back.”

— Erica Jong

  1. Once the decision has been taken to stand and face your fear, you might as well make up your mind to try and enjoy the experience as much as you can! I have personally felt that this has helped me in dealing with my fear of socialising with people at times.
