Afraid of going it alone.
Afraid of failure.
Afraid of what people might think (or already do).
Afraid of my giving my all and going nowhere.
Just like a lot of people. Maybe even just like you.
What would happen if you admitted your deepest fear to someone you cared about? Someone you trusted? Someone you admire or are inspired by?
What if they admitted that they felt that way too? What if they told you their deepest fears? Would you be able to give them the same in return?
Admitting our fear is one of the many steps we all have to take to take the next step. If we let F.U.D., whether from our inner critics or from the ones in front of your face, make our decisions for us… we’ve given away our agency.
Let me be among the many to admit that I’m afraid. Every. Damn. Day. But that struggle hasn’t blocked me from chasing what I want. Hopefully you can find it within yourself to keep struggling too.
