Fears have to be disclosed in order for them to be addressed. We all have fears. Even those that appear to be really confident might have fears that they're failing to manage. At times these fears lead to aggressive behaviors and other times they lead to timidity and lack of poise and confidence.
Many people have fears from childhood or adult life that they don't directly remember but which have a massive affect on how they lead their lives daily and on how they arrive at decisions.
A few people have fears that they're clearly aware of but have no clue how to deal with and how to break the bad affect they're having on their lives. Fear has its space in your life but uncontrolled fear can lead to a life of sorrow, self denigration and unfulfilled goals and desires.
Think of when you were a youngster and simply knew there was a monster lurking at the foot of your bed? How did you control that fear?

Learn to accept your fears, embrace your fears.
But first of all you have to expose your fears. This will be hard work and time consuming, but the advantages will be enormous.
