Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Donahue.
Phil Donahue has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Phil limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary.
