I want to open up to you a little bit – to tell you about fear. Fear is not weakness, but a yearning for unconditional love. It’s a desire to want things to be a certain way but having no way of being certain whether they are possible.
You can dream about having an understanding family who supports each other, but fear that it may never be possible because you are too reliant on others to change. You may want someone to come back into your life because you fear moving on without them. Fear can take many forms.
We often are afraid of situations because we care so deeply about the people involved – we have developed an unconditional love for them. Being afraid is important because it reminds us what we genuinely care about, but it is also important to move passed fear so that we aren’t held back from doing the things that we love. Fear will always be there (fear of failure, fear that we aren’t good enough, fear of financial pressure), but we have a choice how we respond to it.
Being afraid is important because it reminds us what we genuinely care about, but it is also important to move passed fear so that we aren’t held back from doing the things that we love.
On the other side of fear is an immeasurable freedom. The better we equip ourselves at accepting fear as natural the more free we will feel and the more control we will sense of our actions.
If you want to change something about yourself, about your family or about someone you love – take it upon yourself to not be afraid to be the catalyst because if you fear something is wrong it genuinely means you care about it. The worst pain to hold onto is the belief that you should have done more. Do whatever it takes to be free, and this might be painful in the short-term, but our long-term prosperity is what will deliver us true fulfilment.
If you try something and it doesn’t work out – you will live with the freedom that there was nothing more you could do.
