FEAR. Bleep Everything and Run. I was one of those that ran from my fear. I didn’t even realize how scared I was of everything and everybody. It consumed me… It controlled every action I took. Sometimes, I had the courage to walk through my fears, mostly for renovation projects I did, or traveling alone around the Western States and Baja in my van.
But what about finding the courage to let others into my world, to let them see who I really am? That has been more difficult. I’m talking about finding the courage to get past my fears that I will do or say something to make you mad at me, and the big one… that you won’t like me. This fear still continues today, although it has lessened a great deal.
So, how to overcome this fear? FEAR. Face Everything And Recover. What does this mean? It means I first develop awareness of my fears, I identify them. I admit I am powerless over them and decide to quit trying to manage them. I turn them over to the Universe for assistance. Then, I take action.
What does that action look like? Join me on Tuesday for more discussion about how to overcome fear….
