Just A Thought About Fear
As you lay there trying to enjoy your last breath in life, when you ask how you could have done things better I hope you remember this:
Stop living in fear! Seriously, just stop it.
Stop fearing whether you will fit in.
Stop fearing if you will not be liked.
Stop fearing that others will not like your clothes, laugh, jokes, ideas… your whatever
Stop fearing god, stop fearing hell
Stop fearing these things you have no control of. If fearing them would do you any good you would have control of them. The only thing you can control is how you feel or react. Work on that part and the fear will take care of itself…. generally by leaving to go somewhere else.
We fear doing things we are unsure of. We fear new things. We fear what we don’t know, who we don’t know. We fear so much that it really does end up defining how we live but living in fear really isn’t living at all, now is it?
They say that it is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. I say that it is better to live without fear and die young than to have lived a very long life of fear….
What will you stop fearing this week?
