Here is the definition of Confront:
CONFRONT: n. 1. An action of being able to face without flinching or avoiding. 2. The ability to be there comfortably and perceive.
So we see that to confront means to be able to see what is there, comfortably without flinching, wanting to withdraw or running away. Often, to fully understand a word, it is easier to look at the opposite. What does “non-confront” mean? It simply means the inability to see what is there. An inability to face something.
Why can’t we confront something? Because to confront means PAIN. It is too painful to view so we withdraw and refuse to look at the area.
Notice that the definition describes confront as an ability? It isn’t something you do, it is an ability that we develop over time. The ability to see more and more of the truth.
There is also what is call “low-confront” which is where a person can confront a little, can see a little of the truth of what is there… But not all of it.
How do you improve your ability to confront? The same way you improve any other ability, focus, attention and practice. And, dealing with the pain that had you not confronting the area in the first place.
As you can see, the ability to confront is directly connected to the ability to handle change. If a person can’t confront the future, or the unknown… Then they will stay in their comfort zone, and stuck in the past.
There are a whole set of processes to assist anyone in improving their ability to confront. These are available as part of the Optima Program.
