People say the only way to cure a phobia is to slowly face the fear behind them. Don’t be overwhelmed when you read this. It’s only natural that we’d want to be free of the chains our phobia’s imprisoned us in. You question if it’s possible. Can you cure a phobia? So with that in mind, you take a deep breath, and begin.
All of us suffer from one phobia or another, some more than others– most don’t even realize they have them. Although all we can do is try not to give in to it. We’re better than that. We all are.
Even if we’re afraid of facing them, they could end up getting worse than they were before. Bundling them up deep inside of us can be upsetting our overall mental stability, even causing some problems to those around us. As much as we’d like to put the well-being of others ahead of our own, we need to grab our phobia’s by their chains and reign them in.
You can start off by making a detailed list of what your phobia’s may be. Once you’ve finished, break the list down into steps and go from there. Below is an example of how your list should be.
1: How long have I experienced it?
2: What could’ve triggered it and why?
3: How it may be affecting your life and the people around you.
4: Why you’d want to cure the phobia.
5: Is it causing me or anyone else physical harm?
Lastly, you should answer these questions to the best of your knowledge and plan out ways to take each step one at a time to better yourself. The source of the problem can help you a great deal if you’re able to answer it.
Don’t ever let fear control you. Most of us don’t realize how easily fear can back us up into a corner and stop us from doing the things we enjoy in life. The absents of fear can bring forth true enlightenment of one’s consciousness. Don’t we all want to feel better about ourselves and not let anything get in our ways?
On your journey to be rid of your phobia, every time when the opportunity arises to face them. Step forward with open arms and say to yourself; “Nothing can stand in my way.”
Be strong. I’ve been cured of many phobia’s, and so can you. With a little time, effort, and acceptance. You will finally be free of all that binds you.
