Avoidance of anxiety-provoking situations can cause our “comfort zones” to become more and more limited over time. In order to start expanding them again, we may need to face a bit of the unknown and experiment with taking some small risks, where the stakes don’t feel too high. In this way, we start to build confidence and move in the direction we want to go in, one step at a time.
