It is a praiseworthy achievement to overcome a phobia, limitation, or bad habit.
But a greater achievement is when that person shares his knowledge and experiences with others who have similar phobias, limitations, and habits. Not only are they helped, but they can pass on this knowledge to others, creating an expanding benefit from the original sharing.
Consider: If this information were to have remained in the first person's brain cells, it would have eventually disappeared without accomplishing a fraction of what it accomplished by being passed along.
