“Fear is a question: What are you afraid of, and why? Just as the seed of health is illness, because illness contains information, your fears are a treasure house of self-knowledge if you explore them.”
-Marilyn Ferguson

There are a thousand things we are afraid of in life. Fear of change, failure, fear of losing someone, rejection, death, life, taking decisions and the worst, fear of the unknown. I feel we are our worst enemies when it comes to fear. These fears if not checked at the right time can destroy our lives. Small fears we face in our daily lives tend to become too big with time.

Some fears may appear to be very small and unsubstantial, but they add up eventually and we don’t realize what mess we create of ourselves. These surely need to be checked. We all are afraid of something or the other, sometime we face it and sometimes we find ways to run from it. Every fear we cultivate within ourselves actually takes from us the joy of living. Why can’t we take them one by one? Big or small.

-          - The best thing we can do is to first define our fears and look for the source of their origin.

-         -  We can introspect, how life would have been, had we not fear something; I am sure life would seem way better.

-         - Trusting yourself is the best way to overcome any fear. Keep moving forward and never lose patience.

-         - We many a times fail to enjoy the smallest of our successes. We need to find a reason to be happy, to celebrate, to feel inspired and motivated and feel positive about ourselves.

-         - The best thing that can help one feel better and strong is by lending a helping hand to someone in need. This is something that can add up to one’s confidence in a great way.
      Fears should never be kept into dark and should never be left unchecked or untouched. It can really be killing from inside living with a fear each day and each moment. So better try to work through it. Be brave, be fearless.

“I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.”
- Frank Herbert
