“Hello Fear…thank you for being here. You’re my indication that I’m doing what I need to do.” ~ Cheryl Strayed
I notice that I rarely get scared anymore.
I used to live in fear. Fear of not having enough money. Fear of not being liked. Fear of never getting married, of not having children. Fear that something I said might upset or anger someone I cared about.
Fear of looking stupid.
I feared other people’s anger. I feared my own anger. I feared being disappointed. Or worse yet, disappointing others.
I feared earthquakes and cancer and war and death and car accidents and loss and love.
Yes, I even feared love.
