Honest truth – fear
Here are some of my thoughts for tonight as I truly take my time to reflect and accept where I am – no bullshit, no dressing it up, this is my reality!
Most of you would agree with the fact that life is a process that you can take with both hands or fear it – and allow the fear to rule your life. This is what I have done recently and I’m not being hard on myself!
The healing process can take a long time – even years in some cases. As I have been through a couple of distressing situations in the last six months, I definitely know this. Except, I have been so impatient with myself, with the pain, the tiredness, the lack of clarity … that I have allowed myself to be over-ruled also by my fear.
Again, I am sure you will know most of the fears, I am listing below –
Fear of ending up a Bag Lady
Fear of Being Homeless
Fear of something happening to a loved one
Fear of serious illness
Fear of death
Fear of rejection
Fear of failure
Fear of missing out
Fear of embarrassing yourself
Fear of not being good enough
Fear of being found out
Fear of Ageing
Fear of fulfilling your Potential
These are some of my Fears – the list is endless, and I’d love you to add to it or do your own list.
When you do accept your fear
If you do accept your fear, and simply acknowledge it, ‘yes, I’m afraid and I’m going to do it anyway’ or ‘I am afraid and not ready yet’, here is my personal list of what could happen.
You can be generous with understanding yourself and others
You can go with whatever is happening
You can look yourself in the mirror and say ‘I Love You’
You can allow yourself to cry if you want to
You can come out of your comfort zone in your own time and own way
You can acknowledge your gratitude for being alive
You can see you’ve got choice e.g. to go back to bed and rest or get up and out
You can accept this is your life and so get on with it your way
You can know that life is a roller-coaster however you are, and you can ride the ups and downs if you want to
You can see yourself as a part of life regardless of what you are going through
You can know that there are people around who can help your healing
Once again, only you will know what would happen if you faced your fear and did it anyway.
For me, it has been all of the above and, with the help of others, this has been my healing journey with all its ups and downs.
As I know you want to co-create a better world that you know in your heart is possible, you will also know that you must begin with yourself – with your Truth and Fear. What you want to happen may not come about in this lifetime (you may not see the fruits of this), and you can enable the steps toward it for generations to come.
I’d love to hear about how you handle your fear – everything helps one another.
