The answer to this is quite simple yet very complex.
When asked to write on this topic of fear I started thinking of all the things I was afraid of… as my list grew and grew… on and on it went. And I thought, how will I ever write about this, all my fears, there are too many. Why are we so afraid of life?
We all have a fear of life, in general, all of us. We worry about so many things, our loved ones, our health, our work, our bills, our family, our friendships, our relationships, and the list continues…
The answer to this is quite simple yet very complex. It is because we have no control over our own lives. Yes, to a certain degree we do have some control. We can choose how to live our lives, but in the end, we still have no control over things that can happen, and that scares us the most.
There are some ways to get a handle on this type of fear. For some of us we handle it just by going about our lives in the usual manner, while others can be paralyzed by this kind of fear.
We all have encountered fear in our lives many times and it has affected us in more ways than we probably realize. Fear is what usually prevents us from doing something or accomplishing something in our lives simply because our fear of failure is stronger. But failing sometimes can be the best thing for us because it teaches us what we did wrong and how to handle things differently next time around.
Fear is such a powerful emotion in humans, it can stop you from enjoying your life and doing things you want to do. It also determines how you live your life each day. This is why it is so powerful because it has the ability to alter our lives.
This most important thing we can learn from fear is to look it straight in the eye and conquer whatever it is that we fear. The next thing is to accept that it is okay to fail. Each of us has failed at one time or another. And guess what? We survived it and came out even stronger. This is what makes us so beautifully human. We keep trying.
The third thing is to realize that even though we have no control over our lives, accept that whatever is meant for you comes to you in some form or another. Call it fate or destiny, but whatever is meant for us, make no mistake, will come to us.
