What are we so afraid of???
Fear is the loud voice is our head that keeps telling us that we can’t do it, we are not strong enough, we are not good enough, we will fail!
Fear will make you stay in a job you hate simply because you don’t want to start all over again. Out of fear of being alone, you will stay stuck in an unhealthy relationship. Fear will drive you into depression because you imagine people will judge or mock you if you share your problems with them. Fear is so powerful it can make you take your own life simply because you can’t think of any other way out.
The question is, what are we really afraid of? You see, you can doubt everything else around you except your own abilities. When fear makes you doubt that you can’t do it, you have already failed. The faith that you have in yourself is enough to make you beat all the odds. Imagine those times in the past everything around you seemed so dark, all you wanted was to disappear from the face of this earth. That you are reading this now, it means you survived. Trust me when I tell you that that is not the last battle you have fought, many will come, bigger and scary ones.
Do not be afraid to quit your job if you don’t like being there anymore. Be bold enough to say enough is enough and leave, then start afresh. You will feel so much better and free. Be bold enough to stand up to that colleague who keep walking over you because they think you are weak. Be bold enough to take charge of your life and stop allowing people to run it for you. Be bold enough to tell yourself, ‘I’m wrong, I made a mistake this time but I can do better’.
When you realize that fear is all in your head, you will also realize that you can overcome it. There is always a way out and yes, it is okay to be afraid sometimes. You are only human. But snap out of it in good time and take back the steering wheels of your life.
