I have been thinking about putting myself between anvil and hammer as a strategy to “get over”. If it does not kill you, it makes you stronger. It is hard, but life is hard.
Example: the movies of the japanese saga Ju-on used to scare me. They really did. I have seen many horror movies and many splatter movies and even super–splatter movies, and they are nothing to me. But Ju-on scared me.
But that was in the past! Buah! Ha! Ha! Ha! They used to scare me. A while ago I have forced myself to watch these movies again and again, and I got over the fear: they do not scare me anymore. Victory! (It helped that I have a thing about japanese women; that Sadako is not bad, after all!)
