How do you feel about riding with traffic?

I don't like to ride in a traffic because their is so much danger in traffic. But we have to habitual in any kind of condition so i am trying to ride any kind of traffic and empty road.
I don't like it. It's not like Chicago or New York traffic but the bike lanes are few and too many drivers pay no attention to them. Riding across town or riding to either of the adjacent small towns on two lane paved roads is risky. I try to minimize the risk with bright colors and if my mirror reflects an approaching car that doesn't appear to move left a bit I'll risk a goat head puncture to get off the pavement.
so how do you feel riding with traffic, new/experienced cyclists?
Whao, did I misread this thread. I thought the topic was riding with traffic, as opposed to riding against traffic. Not about riding in traffic. Which lead to a lot of misunderstanding.

I apologize to anyone I may have offended. I did
