What are our deepest or recurring fears? How can we confront and overcome those lingering or overwhelming fears?
Fear is an inevitable part of being alive, and we may find that there are many things that bring us fear. Some of those fears are normal and understandable, and some are overwhelming and irrational. We might be afraid of the dark, afraid of being alone, or afraid of creepy crawlies. We may fear our weaknesses or fear another’s power, or we may fear doing something new or being stuck in a rut. We can deal with fear by letting it paralyze us, or we can confront it and see if there is a way to move forward.
Take a few moments to think about fear in your life. You might want to consider the role that fear has, or you might want to confront those specific fears that pop up and keep you from moving forward. You can ponder how you deal with and overcome your fears, or you can explore fear in very general terms. Respond to the idea of fear in a way that seems appropriate to you.
