Wanting to be brave

There are times when I want to be brave but I have difficulty.  Facing my fears and anxieties is quite hard.  I have grown tired of the fear and the anxiety-avoiding avoidance.  Things will happen in the world.  There is nothing I can do about it.  It is like finding a spider or a roach on a coffee table or a video.  I am cautious but it still makes me fearful.  No spider or roach has really done anything to me yet they scare the crap out of me.  I even see fake ones everywhere.  I guess it is like those thoughts that I tend to have.  I realize that trying to be certain of things can either do one or two things: it can cause me to gain more insight and give me the courage to face my fears or feed my thoughts some more.  With spiders and roaches, all I have to do is to get rid of them.  I wonder how to get rid of those thoughts?  I guess I have to be proactive and keep fighting.
