Usually I acknowledge my fears and let them stay in the room. I will not try to make them go away but usually I don’t pay too much attention to them either, unless there’s a real risk involved. Yet a couple of months I wrote a couple of my biggest fears down. Then I forgot about it. Recently I found the list again and to my surprise while some of them still scared me from others I had simply moved on. They didn’t matter anymore and I wouldn’t have known this, if I wouldn’t have done the fears the courtesy to write them down.
