Guide to moving on:
1. Write it down-
Whether your fear is something as simple as rats or something as complex of being alone, you need to write it down.

What stops you from making a decision? Too deep a question? Whether it is your career, love life, family, friends, the world, etc. list down your blockages. Once you know what stops you from grabbing an opportunity, the next time you will be aware of this pattern, and you will try to prevent it and eventually break it.
It is said correctly that always forgive, but never forget. Your situation keeps changing, and hence your decisions will change accordingly as well. You can make the same decision again and have two outcomes. So forgive yourself for your past mistakes but don’t forget the lessons learnt. Don’t be afraid to take the same step again, this time you may succeed with flying colors.
If you have a certain fear, why do you have that fear – analyze your fear? Sometimes we know the answer but we cannot come to the terms and accept it. Give yourself some time and come to grips with the reason and accept it. You can also seek guidance from therapists for the same. The analyzing of the root cause of fear will lead to its annihilation.
