"The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself."
--Franklin Delano Roosevelt
This is a very true message. Fear can really set you back and keep you there. Fear can ruin your life, if you let it.
There is, of course, healthy fear (which I call caution). The kind that keeps you safe, like from fire, or falling, or your "sixth sense" of protection. This kind of fear is a wonderful tool.
But the kind of fear that’s just a bad, irrational habit from childhood, the one that prevents you from changing or doing your best, the fear that freezes you in your tracks – is worthless. It exists only for itself. It must do anything it can in order to preserve itself. It will surface at the worst of times.
I recommend just putting that kind of useless fear aside. Surrender it to God, and ask for it to be relieved.
