Reply To: Phobia being around loud and verbally aggressive people


    Thanks Paul and Brian for the good information, I'm going to keep going on this.  I like Brian's idea of nibbling away at the edges of my fear as it doesn't seem like such a large “jump” to my subconscious.  I will start using PTQT on installing positive beliefs.  I also really like Paul's analogy of a smoke detector that's set too sensitive as this is definitely how I feel.  I can recall dozens of times in my life where I first thought a person or situation was very dangerous only to find out that I could not have been more wrong, which was pleasantly embarrassing, I suppose  ::)
