When you are afraid, there is a natural reaction to this state in your body. You may feel an internal panic that swells as you approach an airplane. Your flight experiences are nothing short of painful. This fear is uncomfortable but it is manageable. When it becomes unbearable, it has developed into a fear of flying.
A phobic condition is very problematic because it interferes with your daily life. You avoid going to places due to intense fear and you become afraid of your flying. When your frustration gets in the way of your ability to work, you have a phobic situation that needs attention.
You can use neuro-linguistic programming to address this fear whether you have fear or a phobic situation. Although your fear may be manageable, you don't want to suppress these feelings. If you are constantly managing your fears then your subconscious mind may get overwhelmed.
