Maat E's Mental Health Message
Face, feel then fight your fears. Before we can overcome the obstacle of something we are afraid of we must face it or identify exactly what it is. Facing it also means turning our attention to the fear, not avoiding that it exists. Once we clarify what we fear the next step is to allow ourselves to feel all of the emotions that come with it. Go into whatever the fear brings up as difficult and painful as it may be. Relief will come. Then fight. Take acton to address or remove the factors that create the fear in the first place. Work hard against it and you will over come.
