Anxiety starts very small. At first it’s a gentle inclination, but through avoidance the brain learns two things: that the thing you are by passing is scary, and that avoiding the thing makes you feel good. The more you avoid it, the more it is reinforced in your brain.
If something makes you panic or feel anxious you cannot avoid it, you’ll only exacerbate the problem. So ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’. Start gradually, small steps lead to bigger ones.
