Taking back your life and diminishing the control fear has had over it!
If you allow it!!!
What is fear? How is it defined? An unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat. Fear is an emotion that is fed by our thoughts, the words or actions of others. We as humans fear many things. We fear death, we fear illness, and we fear rejection and abandonment. We fear loss, we fear failure. Sometimes we even fear success. We fear love. We fear being loved. We fear physical pain, we fear what others will think of us. We fear what we think of ourselves. We fear so many things beyond what fear is defined as. Many of us are frozen by fear. We lie stagnant not living, not changing, and not moving forward because of fear. We are victims, prisoners to fears that may or may not be rationale.
I myself was bound by fear for over 20 years. I didn’t sleep well, I didn’t focus completely at work, and I missed out on full enjoyment of being a mother. Of being a young woman, of being alive. I suffered an abusive childhood only to move on to an abusive marriage; both which held me captive by fear. I was afraid to leave, afraid to stay, afraid to say yes and afraid to say no. I was afraid to be successful yet afraid to fail. I was afraid people would know and I was afraid no one would ever discover my situation which frightened me to think I would stay in it forever. But my biggest fear is what God used to turn it all around. I was afraid of remaining afraid for the rest of my life!! A movement happened within me. My mind began to battle the fear and my spirit began to birth courage. Fear will make you tired. It will make you feel hopeless, Fear will drain the very life from you. IF YOU ALLOW IT!!
