It's never easy to understand something that we're afraid of. Trying to see what's lying behind a fear or an anxiety is hard to do. Perspective isn't an easy thing to find. Nor is 'rising above it' something you can do with a click of your fingers. When you're in the middle of a challenging situation, you can't simply refuse to let it get to you. Our emotions tend to swamp our intellect and tinge our lives with their colour and mood. Yet switching them off is easier than you think today. If you want to do it, you can.
