If you change your behavior, even should you stutter your incidence rate of avoidance will be lower.
Then, whether you stutter or not, you will have lots of experience doing what you want to do and will be able to do what you must do, and you will be less affected by stuttering.
Eventually, you will no longer think “I cannot do this and that because I stutter,” and you will be able to accept yourself even if you still feel ashamed of your stuttering.
In short, you will no longer be controlled by stuttering.
