How to differentiate fear from desire? (Craving women)

Tags: women fear desire


I've overcomed my craving for alcohol a year ago when I left it permanently. Never been an alcoholic, but overcoming it has been a important step in my practice. I see alcohol around me, my friends drink and so on and I don't feel anything. I know I wont drink.

Now, with Women it's different. Everytime I see a very very attractive women I feel a physical discomfort.

Not sure if its because of Desire that we all know ends up in suffering. Hence the right action would be to avoid the women.

Or if its Fear of rejection, in which case I should face my fears and approach the women.

I just don't know why my body feels tensed up when I see certain women, despite knowing that women don't bring happiness.

You can change women, for a different "object" wheter is career, relationships...etc. I think the same feelings apply for any object where confusion arises.

Any advice?

Thank you.
