Martha’s writing, strong and steady as a heartbeat, made instant and absolute sense. If you’ve found yourself allowing fear to lead you into uncomfortable avoidance patterns, I urge you to have a read of The Willingness Factor: Learn to Avoid Advoidance.

this topic to be really one thing that I believe
I would by no means understand. It seems too
complicated and extremely extensive for me.
I am having a look ahead to your subsequent put up, I will try to get the hang of it!

I am fighting this battle; and what I have learned is not willingness to avoid is not good for youself, and can make you
literally hide from life. Small steps. The first rule… small steps. Walk out of your home. Breathe. Start with hydrating, fulling your kitchen with good food.
tell your family and close friends. WALK. WALK. WALK. Routine. Every day.
I am 1/3 one of the way there. remember; you can fight off the drugs. They become ” you” detox slowly. But you must be willing to re enter the world.
Stop thnking of yourself as a ” bad person” rather think of yourself as a person
who has overcome many odds. Stop self blame. My heart goes out to you,
!7 % of Americans suffer from this. Reach out slowly. Prayers for you.

This really hit home — I have a lot of fear. Thanks for bring this topic “to the surface”. Just finished “Finding your way in a wild new world”. I loved it — marked it up and bookmarked it — it is on my nightstand. My heart broke for the baby giraffe — but I love the lessons. Be well.

Your article is just what I needed today!
Taking a couple of deep breaths now and plunging into some things I’ve been avoiding due to concern about failure. One thing I know for sure is if I don’t try – the result is guarenteed to be failure! Your insights are appreciated.

This article has given me the motivation to change. Baby steps ( What About Bob) lol Thanks
