Last week we took a closer look at some of the negative emotions we feel in our hearts and bodies and the related thoughts in our minds, more specifically dealing with anger, guilt, and regret. Some of the negative energy from this excess baggage is directed towards others, and some is directed toward ourselves.
Let’s continue this journey, looking now at Fear.
What is Fear? Fear is anxiety caused by real or possible danger or pain. Our fearful thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are reasonable when certain harm might befall us. However, most of our fears are unfounded.
Instead of thinking about how terrible fear is, think how fear can help us. We would never become courageous without experiencing fear. We build courage and self-confidence every time we force ourselves to do something that we really want to do even though we may feel afraid.
We need to go beyond our comfort zone and push ourselves to meet challenges. The problem for many of us is that we run from those things that make us afraid instead of tapping into our inner strength and facing them.
