Listening to the fear rise from people in so many areas of life dismays me. It seems that people are looking for excuses to blame others for their fear. I see it in politics, world news, health issues, the price of gas — you name it, people find something to be afraid of and to blame others for.
I believe that we don’t need to have fear as a reaction. Sorrow, concern, and activism are better responses. But, I think that love is the best response. Hate and fear don’t help you feel secure and safe. Those emotions only keep you stirred up and insecure. Love, on the other hand, lets you relax and feel safer and more secure.
More of my thoughts on fear are found in this 4-minute video.
Fear stifles your creativity, your capability to think clearly, your sense of adventure, your capacity to think outside the box when it comes to problem solving and team building, and your ability to love fully.
Life can be so much more when you conquer fear, when you open yourself to more positive attitudes and feelings.
