Don’t allow fear to tell you that you can’t do something. Allow it to keep you cautious not to move too quickly, and fall, as you charge forward.
Don’t allow fear to keep you from following your path. Allow it to help you choose solid rocks to climb and keep firm footing.
Don’t allow fear to keep you from connecting with people. Allow it to help you choose people who share strength and encouragement. Separate from others, while they find their way, so you don’t loose yours.
I was thinking about fear, this morning. I used to say I wasn’t afraid of anything. In reality, I just stupidly charged into dangerous situations to cover the fact that I was overwhelmed with fear. Fear of not succeeding, fear from all the bad decisions I had made, and fear of facing my past to push forward.
I still have fear. But that fear is beginning to transform into a healthy fear. As self-love and confidence builds, my fear now keeps me safe and cautious.
