When fear serves you poorly

People willingly buy into uninformed theories, or even hearsay, because it validates their fears.

We need our fears to be validated when we’re afraid of appearing incompetent, or feeling insignificant.

This is the beginning of the slide towards losing yourself to the opinions of the collective as you focus on belonging more than you focus on being true to yourself.

For some, isolation is such a daunting thought because they are afraid of discovering who they are, and the risk that they may realise that they’re not good enough.

You are only as good as you think you are. And if you find yourself convincing yourself about something that has no real substance to make it believable, you’ll find yourself constantly on edge each time that ‘truth’ feels threatened, because you’re afraid that someone else might just expose it to be a lie.

Be true to yourself, have the courage to face your fears, and don’t follow the herd.

The path towards peace is not cheap, but it’s worth it.
