    Thanks for the confidence and well-wishes.
    I’ve only ever tried this with panic-inducing things. Situations that cause very intense immediate reactions. Quite honestly, it never occurred to me to try it with other fears; please let me know how it works out.

    Good luck on your flight. Sounds like you’ll do just fine. I might have try out this exercise myself to dial back some of the anxiety I’m feeling about being away from my wife for a month 🙂

    Incredibly interesting! Admittedly, I have some fears as well. Granted, mine aren’t about traveling but about things that may happen to people close to me. Sometimes I get angry when things are out of my control and people get hurt. I know it is a fear but I may have to try what you are talking about to see if it helps. Good luck!

    I have every confidence that you are going to be fine taking that flight to Greece. You’re not the same person you were 10 years ago, you’re much stronger and more confident. You can overcome this, and good things will result from it 🙂

      Thanks for the confidence. 10 years is a long time to grow, but it is a long time to let a fear lie too. Maybe I’ll just let it play out as a game of sport in my head to distract from the flight.
