One of the most common pieces of advice people receive when they're feeling scared is to " face their fears."
However, this can often feel easier said than done.
When we're faced with something that frightens us, our first instinct is often to shy away from it and take refuge in what feels safe.
But if we want to conquer our fear, simply hiding away is not enough.
We must be willing to step out into the unknown and get busy.
By taking action and putting ourselves in new situations, we force ourselves to confront our fears head-on.
And while it may be daunting at first, overcoming our fears is ultimately empowering and liberating.
So next time you're feeling scared, instead of staying home and letting your fear take control, get up and get busy.
You may be surprised at what you're capable of.
