“Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.”
― C. JoyBell C.
As kids we are made to learn and unlearn a set of fears. Most of these are created by the society that teaches us to be scared and to indulge in self-doubt. Everything that we are afraid to take on, becomes an instant enemy. But have you ever questioned yourself as to why you fear a certain thing? Or how you can turn this fear into a helpful friend?
Anxiety, Depression, Panic attacks- these are ruling the lives of the younger generations today. We live with the constant fear of failure, wrong decisions, not succeeding and being judged. Instead we should make our insecurities or fears our best friends. Understanding your fear is a great way to break it down. When you unbox your fear, you get a better look at what makes it scary to you and during this process you also come up with a solution to combat it. Your fears tell a story about you. They talk about things you have been through and the scars of various battles that you bear like a hero. But remember, your fears do not define you, they only speak of battles yet to be won and things yet to be achieved. Repeated efforts at confronting your fears make the journey a smoother one. As they say, practice makes man perfect.
If you neglect your anxiety, it builds up in time taking a humongous form which scares you further with increased palpitation, momentary dizziness and headaches. In order to overcome this, one must only, pay attention to things that cause them tension, worry or panic. Do what makes you fearful. Once you finally do it, you will feel a tremendous joy which will overpower your anxiety. This is a process of taking away the power from your distress. Remember, the fact that you are afraid proves that your heart is still beating and that there is something you desire to get or achieve. It is the sign of a healthy life.
