Overcoming fear is never easy. I’ve heard it said that you can fight FEAR by:
“Facing Everything And Relaxing”.
Easier said than done…

Fright or Flight: The Wings of Man
(AKA: I Be Wingin’ It)
Flying is my greatest fear.
But here I am spreading my wings a little. Ha.
My therapist said this was an important step:
“To grow, you have to fly.”
Against my better judgment, I am in flight to my brother’s, who pronounced:
“Fighting fear without action is like a bird trying to fly without wings.”
I had vehemently refused to fly on vacation with my estranged wife. But when our kids told her, she sniped:
“Tell him if he wants to overcome his trust issues, he ought to try jumping.”
I told that to my minister to overcome my anger; she just mumbled something about wings, and a prayer.
