FEAR: something we are all familiar with; in a myriad manifestations.
Essentially, fear is our response to danger: either real, or "imagined" danger, with three
possible means of response.
"Fight" in the context of healing means to face the fear and its origin.
"Flight" in this conext means to run from, or "avoid" dealing with the causes (or causes).
"Freeze" means to be so paralyzed by the fear that we are unable to think or move - not a
good situation at all (see Stress introduction for more detail).

Let Go Of Fear
"Facing/Fighting" of course, is
the wisest choice in this context,
no matter how scary it seems
or feels at first. If we face it,
deal with the its causes, then
we've defeated it and won't
experience that one again.
Help is available for you to do
so, here on the site with its
resources, as well as personal
help. And there are many other
resources widely available to
you, in many other places.
Flight or fleeing is an
understandable response - at
least, it may momentarily allay
the sense and feeling of danger.
However, there is a caveat: when
feeling, most of the time we are
in "from" mode, NOT "to" mode.
Our focus at that moment is almost totally on getting out of there, away from the danger; we may have
some sense of where we're fleeing to - but once the fear has diminished, we will quickly discover that
although we avoided it, we ran in a direction whose destination has taken us further from our own chose (or
wished-for) path, and while we're momentarily safe - we have our work cut out to get back on track. Fear
has the power the side-track us.
Freezing really isn't an option, for we may very well be in danger: either physical, or emotional/spiritual.
If this is something that you need to deal with, I've provided some resources here on the site to help guide
