We often perceive fears as our greatest enemy, yet they provide us with an enormous opportunity for self-growth. What if we were to see them as friends who want to help us become a better person, a person who isn’t afraid to be more of who we really are? Let your fears help you instead of hurt you by asking them, “Why are you here? What are you trying to teach me?” Then, write down what comes to you. You may be surprised by the answers.
I believe that every situation, especially the challenging ones, provides you with an opportunity to grow as a human being, if you let it. At the surface, change and the unknown, a seemingly daunting duo are actually disguises for two loving teachers who really want you to transform into the strong, authentic and powerful person you already are. The sooner we’re able to get that, the sooner you’ll be free to truly live your life.
