    i agree that facing your fears is the way to deal with them, but little by little. if you're afraid to drive, you might need to start just by looking at the car you would like to drive. in your next session, sit behind the wheel. a drive around the block might be a major accomplishment. make your steps just big enough so that whatever anxiety you have doing them is manageable. you can always back off to the previous step if you get too activated. sometimes professional help is good to plan a program of gradual exposure. sometimes just imagining doing whatever is a good first step.

    The only method besides being in control of our mind and face our fears that i knew would work is by prayer smile

    I just stopped being afraid and decided to be awesome instead.

    Just kidding.

    I always enjoyed not only facing, but overcoming any fears that I had. I spent a good chunk of my life doing just that thing.

    Faith, if you believe in God, you'll trust that nothing can harm you, and when you face problem, you know that it is for your benefit, maybe to make stronger & wiser .etc.

    Do those things which you most afraid of. Try it without thinking about the results.

    there are two ways. 1. put yourself in the situation of that, which makes you afraid. once you realize your perception (one-sided view of a two-sided event) was based on you experiencing more pain then pleasure was incorrect. second, on paper, you can "balance your emotions" using an exercise of listing the benefits of your fear or event. what are the benefits of.........happening. you can start there and dissolve the event/fear by working through both sides. when you reach a point where you say, "OMG", you may even have a tear well up, you have broke through that item.
