You feel the heaviness, the imaginary, unmovable stone that’s sitting on top of your chest.
But it doesn’t feel so imaginary. It feels weighty, restrictive, menacing.
Maybe you don’t feel it sitting on your chest like a boulder. Maybe you feel it in the pit of your stomach, churning and uneasy. Maybe you feel it as a whispered doubt in your ear, telling you boldly that you are not good enough.
No matter how you feel it, there’s one truth we must all accept: we all do feel it.
Oddly enough, fear is something, on a basic instinct level, that we all fear. Talk about irony. We try to ignore it, avoid it, redirect it, and so much more, but in the end, it’s still there.
And maybe, just maybe, the key isn’t to stop the fear, but rather to embrace it.
What? … Why would I embrace something inherently negative? I’m so glad you asked.
It’s simple. Fear isn’t actually negative. It’s an indication that you’re doing something right (unless you’re cliff jumping like I did all the time as a teenager- then it’s probably saying hey stupid!)
Fear, in its purest form, is an indication that we are actually on the right path- not the wrong one.
Until next time, lifers.
