A Quote by Jacquelene Close Moore on empowerment, fear, acceptance, and avoidance

The continued and complete avoidance of something gives away the very urgent necessity for -at some point - that very same thing to be discovered, delved deeply into, and actually utilised in your life. As such, the only way out of something is often to go into it...confront, it face it, and overcome.
