What is your relationship with fear?
Fear itself can lead you into (or keep you in) many ugly situations... Fear is the main, underlying and unaddressed issue in many people’s lives. What patterns does it have you repeating?
Ugly, Nasty, Fear can push you to move forward. The voice of Fear can prompt you to do things to the detriment of other areas of your life.
Stop running, stop seeking outside validations…
Don’t listen to Fear!
You’ve probably heard the age-old phrase, face your fears. Well, I take it one step further. What do I say? I say, WRITE FEAR A LETTER.
Seriously. Write an actual letter to your fears.
Addressing your fears directly helps you understand them as well as strengthen the greatest relationship of all in your life, the one with yourself. Stabilize and strengthen your inner world and you can endure any outside storms or fluctuations. When you put fear in its place, you set that stable foundation of clearly naming and knowing your fears and you’re actually acknowledging that they are not you, they are something outside of you. You’re thus disempowering them so they can’t control you, and the power balance returns to your favour.
It’s not a one time deal though, you probably have to address them regularly to keep it in its place. It's a daily, conscious effort. You don’t have to write them daily. You likely don’t have time to write a full letter to daily. That’s fair, and I wouldn’t expect you to write this letter daily. However, if you’ve at least made the time once to write that letter, you’ve set that foundation. It will get easier to recognize fears, and call them out, whenever they creep back in…. So, why not sit down and write a letter to your fears this weekend? Tell them how you feel about them. Get them out of your way.
I hear the sceptics chiming in… But, seriously, I say do this anyway. You may surprise yourself with how empowering it feels…
