Embracing Fear

Day 59


I embrace my fears so that I can let them go.


The best way to overcome a fear is not to convince oneself that it is unreasonable, an imagining, unrealistic or unfounded.   We don’t overcome our fears by ignoring them or pushing against them.  We overcome fear when we face it, embrace it and accept its possibility (even if unrealistic).  Trying to convince myself not to be afraid will never make me unafraid, but taking my fear as a ‘worst case scenario’, imagining the result of its manifestation, realizing the world will not end ‘if’ and accepting it,  will allow me to move on.   The adage, “what we resist, persists” applies to fear.     I can only let my fears go when I accept them.
