Avoiding Discomfort: Anxiety leaves our bodies & minds feeling uncomfortable. Since most of us don't like feeling uncomfortable (incl feeling embarrassed!), we tend to start avoiding situations/experiences that have become associated w/ that discomfort. We may understand the discomfort won't kill us, but we don't necessarily see the harm in avoiding it. But avoidance can become a way of life & can shrink our worlds.
