IS FEAR HOLDING YOU BACK?

If you had to confess your greatest fears to someone, what would they be? Do these fears impact your life daily? Would conquering your fears make your life a bit easier? Sometimes, fear will keep us from enjoying our lives to the fullest extent. The greatest way to overcome dread is to tackle that fear? Confronting your fear may allow you to realize that your concern was over exaggerated. It may even become something in your life that you truly enjoy. If you are afraid of water, you should try learning how to swim. Perhaps, you are afraid of heights, try a ride at an amusement park.  Overcoming certain fears can prepare you for future situations that you may encounter. Sometimes, we are afraid of certain things because we are not familar with them. Imagine not knowing how to swim, and being in a situation where you need to know how to swim. Fear and panic are not a good combination. Fright can cause paranoia and paranoia can cause you to lose control of your life. You never want to let your fear get the best of you.

  1. I don't know if I am being defeated in any way by fears, but I do know that I approach life with caution and I do have some realistic concerns about statistics, and the laws of gravity, meaning I don't want to get robbed or shot, but I'm not going to buy a gun to protect myself, I'm not afraid of dogs but I am afraid of their bite, I'm not affraid of heights but I am of the fall. I know that self sufficiency is a good attribute to possess, but I believe in God more then I believe in myself, so if I am afraid of anything and I am, it's God. I'm afraid of not putting him first over anything that I might want to do, those fear are real enough to hold me back in life, but not with regrets.
