Turning Towards

We all have things which make our heart race.

For me, it’s certain kinds of confrontations at work, mostly.

I’ve noticed that turning towards those things has two effects:

  1. They never turn out to be as big, bad, or scary as I thought they might have been when they came across my radar initially.
  2. Dealing with them promptly & directly makes the next one seem a little bit less scary than the previous one.

Of course, turning away has the opposite effect; it simply magnifies the illusion that you can’t tackle this.

You can.
