Fear is what comes to mind when I think of Halloween. But that’s not the only type fear out there, the fear of loosing a loved one, the fear of trying something new or the fear of failing in something, the list can go on and on.
I know from personal experience that fear can stop you from trying to accomplish things in life. It’s hard for me to try new things because I’m afraid of leaving my comfort zone. I rather play it safe then to try something new because I have a thought in the back of my mind telling me, WHAT IF? What if things don’t go according to plan? What if you get hurt? What if it wasn’t worth doing? This is what goes through my mind because I’m such an overthinker, I always have to think of the negative before the positive and by the time I get to the positive it’s pretty much too late since all the negativity has gotten to me by then.
But what we have to remember is that FEAR IS TEMPORARY. It’s NOT going to last forever. But the things that we don’t do because of fear is going to become Regret and that’s something that will stick with you.
One of the things that I’ve done to face my fears was to take a chance on a guy who didn’t live in the same state as me. Pushing through the long distance, taking a chance on a relationship and trusting him.
If I hadn’t faced my fears and taken that chance I would most likely be thinking back right now with regret, wondering what would have happened if I did?
So ignore your fears and live life to the fullest! I know it’s easier said then done but pushing your fears aside and doing the things you want in life will be the most rewarding feeling.
Also, pray. Praying over your fears does wonders, always know that you’re never alone and that GOD is always with you.
Have a fearless week and I’ll see you next Monday.
