Create an internal "comfort zone''. Then, when you get into the situation, it isn't foreign. It doesn't scare you.

When I was a young man, I found out that if you hurt somebody, they'll leave you alone. When I tried to leave everybody alone and just do my own thing, everybody just wanted to hurt me.
