"THE MOUNTAIN SHRINKS WHEN YOU TURN AND FACE IT."
We have all been there and it isn't unusual at all.
There is this little something or maybe it is a big something whatever it is. It is bothering you. Just a bit at first but it is bothering you nonetheless. You know it isn't that big of a deal really or maybe it is but either way you avoid it. You don't acknowledge it and you pretend you are not bothered by this itch, this thorn in your side. You push it down and carry on.
Except you can't carry on, not completely. It is always there, in the back of your mind, growing and growing. This demonic creature sits on your back and grows heavier and heavier. The more you ignore it the more terrifying it becomes and the more it weighs you down.
It doesn't have to though. You can beat it.
Now I know it sounds like I am oversimplifying the problem. I am not. This will be hard, it will be scary and it will take a lot of work that I will not deny. But if you do this, you will take the power away from the thing you are avoiding. You will stop feeding it and will make the first steps in the battle to overcoming, overpowering and overthrowing it.
Turn and face your problem. Look it right in the face, say it's name, say you are not afraid of it. Write it down, write down what could happen if you don't tackle it and what could happen if you do. Look at both lists and then begin to plan how you are going to take down this terrible titan that has been slowing you down.
You have got this chaps.
You are strong and you are powerful!!
Don't give up on hope and don't let the bastards in your head get out of hand or grind you down!
