Fears can be major limiting factors in your life. We often focus on the negativity that fears can cause, but if we were to change our perspective on how to view fears, I think many of us would make decisions differently.
Instead of ignoring our fears and allowing them to control so much of our lives, let’s really think about what we fear and how those uncertainties can help us. When we fear making certain decisions, our conscious is speaking to us. Our conscious is just trying to protect us, but instead of giving in to these feelings what we should do is question why we are feeling like this. Why am I so afraid to…? Why do I feel like I can’t…? These fears arising in us could mean many different things. Maybe we had a bad experience, we feel like we aren’t capable, or we may even feel like others will judge us. Whatever the reasons, your fears are a great opportunity to jump out of your comfort zone. When we jump out of our comfort zones we open so many new doors for ourselves. Moving out of our comfort zone means that we gain better experiences— doesn’t matter if they are good or bad, better life lessons, and we just gain more confidence, overall. The more we grow, the more our fears will arise, but at the same time the fears that we have conquered will always give us the self-confidence to overcome our next fears. The beauty of this is that we will continue to grow and learn more about who we are and what we are capable of accomplishing.
Through my own experiences, my advice would be to question your fears and don’t ever give in to them. Some fears may take longer to conquer than others, but that just means you gain something bigger and better at the end.
