‘Self Inflicted’ – Counting down.
“Men have two greatest fears: the first fear is the fear of being needed, and the second fear is the fear of not being needed.”
– C. JoyBell C.
I received an email today that made me think about fear, acceptance, recognition, needs of ourselves and needs of others. In such a technologically connected world, there are so many people that are ‘disconnected’ (from life and others). It’s a big scary world out there with a lot of challenges and I will be the first to admit that I have fear of things I cannot control. So, why be fearful? There is the cliché sayings like “Face your fears” , “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” . . as cliché as they may be, they are truth. Again with truth — seeking truth for me is acceptance . . . acceptance of myself, my truth, my fears. I accept that I feel fear — but I will not accept that fear can control me. Finding ones truth is scary, yes . . . but nothing to be fearful of. Unless your truth is that you are an axe murderer, which I am thankfully not. So – take that fear! *smack*
