Fears

One of the best sensations in the world is overcoming fears. We are born with only two fears: the fear of loud noises and the fear of falling. So all the other fears we have were acquired throughout life. Either by bad experiences we had or because we were told about the danger of doing X. Among the most common fears there is the fear of speaking in public, the fear of dying, the fear of being a failure, the fear of being criticized and judged. At a first glance, fears are good because they protect us from being physically hurt and allow us to stay alive. However, in the majority of the time, we allow fear to escalate and take proportions that block us from being happy and free. From living.
Those are not natural fears. They are just not part of us and so they don’t need to stay within us. Fears are illusions. A blockage that our mind creates to something that is hard to think of doing, so it stays in the “don’t touch area”. Fears are the reflection of what we need to work on ourselves. Overcoming a fear requires a lot of effort and courage. But when we overcome it, we feel empowered, limitless. So get yourself out there and release yourself from what is blocking you. Live free. Live authentically.
