One of the worst feelings we have is false fear.
We build ourselves into a frenzy of fear by claiming there’s a danger here and there. It’s everywhere to some people.
The fear only takes hold when we place a level of danger to an action.
Some people fear leaving the house. Having children. Growing old. Being abandoned. Skydiving.
I face some of those fears. And I have others. Like public speaking. It terrifies me.
Because I’ve associated it with something dangerous. Failing. Stumbling over my words. Looking like a fool.
Yep. To me those are the dangers of public speaking.
But what happens if we took away the sense of danger? The fear begins to subside.
Without danger, the fear has no hold.
