Don’t honour your fear

Fear is a tricky emotion.

When we feel the fear rising within us, it’s the first time that we become aware of something that threatens our peace or our significance.

But because it’s also the most prominent emotion that connects with us physically, it often feels more real than it is.

That’s why we respond to the fear, or we set out trying to find the best ways to cope with it.

But fear is just a signal to draw our focus to the real issue that requires our attention.

Fear is driven by the assumptions that we make about whether our needs are going to be fulfilled, or not.

Fear is what we experience when what we need from a situation or relationship is under threat.

The reasons for it being under threat is often a combination of actual lessons learnt, versus assumptions based on past experiences.

It’s those assumptions the we should focus on, not the fear itself.

After careful consideration, should the assumptions prove true, we then have the opportunity to respond purposefully to the issues that we’ve identified, rather than holding on to the fear itself.

Don’t honour your fear. Honour your ability to rise above it, the way you have so many times before in your life.

Own Your Life.
