I talk about this one a lot. Conquering my fears. Somedays walking out the door is the best I can hope for. Fear is what makes you stronger. It’s how you move forward. If it were easy it wouldn’t make you afraid.
My fears are a great many. I know my fears because I’ve been processing them for most of my life. Talking about what scares me, why they scare me. How I can get around my fears. And what to do when my fears are standing in front of me and I can’t do anything but move forward to get past them. Everyday I live with the man who makes my nightmares the stuff of my reality. Everyday I get in an elevator and defy my brain’s workings. I won’t die in it. I won’t fall. I won’t get hurt. I know these things on a rational level. But fears aren’t always rational.
But it is the fear that makes you stronger, that keeps you aware.
Being an adult brings with it a new set of fears. And when you are a parent – even more fears. No matter what your fear is, knowing you can get through it. You have gotten through it in the past is only going to help. It’s not easy, and it takes work, but you can do it. It’s humanly possible to do it. And when you have someone who cares and loves you, do it together. There is no better way to show your love than to help someone else through their greatest fears.
