There is no such thing as complete fearlessness. While there are those that naturally have more of an ability to be courageous, everyone has fears. And it is perfectly normal to have the inclination to escape or avoid things that make us afraid and uncomfortable. The problem is, we can never truly grow as individuals or as a society if we are not willing to face our fears when necessary. And, more than that, fears can breed ugly emotions and actions that actually set us back and can hurt others. If we continue to let our fears control us, we will never have the type of control over our lives and decisions that we would like to.
Often fear comes from past experiences that went wrong or brought trauma. A way to get through it is to remember that you have already survived that experience and are still pushing forward. Some ways of fighting your fear are to write about and to your anxiety, count the things you are thankful for and use humor to work through your fear. (Psycom)
Avoiding your fears just makes you more afraid. The longer you go without facing your fears, the more your brain will distort and exaggerate the fear until it is no longer a reflection of reality at all. Every time you avoid facing your fear, you are making it more difficult to overcome it next time. (Psychology Today)
