Running to safety

Acceptance precedes change, the self-help books proclaim. One can’t advance unless they agree with their current state.

Similarly, uncertainty boils in anticipation. The only way to calm the nerves is to take an action that scratches the itch. Doing instead of wondering is a litmus test for hope.

Both acceptance and initiative make us feel more alive. Go toward the fear. Running away from anything always makes things worse.
