Fear takes different forms.
When we are young, we are afraid of the darkness.
We grow up and find that it’s not that scary.
We grow up and start getting scared of things we never expected to induce fear in our spines.
We fear getting older.
We fear responsibilities
We fear the death of someone dear
We fear ending up alone, dying alone, meeting new people, getting out of our comfort zone and trying something new,…
We fear failure as we fear success.
We are afraid of other people’s jealousy, their opinions, their comments, their criticism.
We are afraid of ourselves. No wonder we’d be afraid of others.
As adults, all the fears inside our heads materialize in front of us. And sometimes we stand helpless in the face of those fears that block the road for us.
Fear stops us from doing what we want to do. And unless we put our fears in front of us, and get nuclear on their asses, we will still be controlled by them.
But that’s not easy.
Just, one step at a time.
We can do it
Yes we can
I was binge-watching (as it has been going on for some time now) Desperate Housewives, and this closing line came up to fit exactly what I wanted to say in this post:
“There is much to be afraid of in this world. But what we fear has nothing to do with gruesome masks, or plastic spiders, or life-like monsters. It’s the thoughts in our heads that terrify us the most […] How do we conquer these terrifying thoughts? We start by reminding ourselves, what does not kill us just makes us stronger!”
