Fear is scary.

I know it.

You know it.

We all know it because we have all had something in our lives that we have been afraid of. You may be struggling with a certain fear right now.

It comes in all different shapes and forms.

One person’s fear is no greater than another person’s fear.

Fear is fear.

The fear of speaking our fears out loud is daunting. Keeping quiet lets you stay in a safe state of status quo and from venturing forward into the unknown.

When you give a voice to your fears, they become real. And when something becomes real, you feel compelled to do something to about it.

Don’t you think that it’s time to break that addiction in 2017?

  1. I love this! I’m totally in line with your thinking. The worse thing in the world is to live in fear. Not even talking about large fears like bombing or invasion or war. Small fears of small wars. Fear of trying, fear of failing, fear of losing face. All these fears are mine and I’m beating them, Slowly, day by day. In the physical and the metaphysical before you create or destroy yo must name, identify. “The Name Means Everything”

  2. I can connect with your piece. I would love to get to the stage where I am fearless. Not reckless or dangerous fearlessness, but being in control and not be controlled by real or imagined things.

  5. I think there is room for fear in life, it shows a cation that is needed at times, a way for our brains to help us be safe, but I also believe giving into every fear doesn’t lead you anywhere. Fear isn’t always about bad things either- it can be a fear of success too which can really put a damper in your hopes and dreams. i think overcoming the ones that are not helpful to your life and making yourself ‘less’ of a victim will provide a better quality of life.

  6. I feel like I’m in every direction with fear. In some ways, it rules my life. Too many ways. Fighting it never seems to work… having more of it doesn’t necessarily make me spring into action… and I haven’t figured out how to escape it…
