Closing your eyes is NOT going to change anything!
“Closing your eyes isn't going to change anything. Nothing's going to disappear just because you can't see what's going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes.

"He said, “If I have found favor in your eyes, my lord, do not pass your servant by." Genesis 18:3
