Learning to get over fear is hard. Fear is a sneaky little beast that weaves it’s into your very thought patterns. Trying to dig it out is hard. I have some weird fears and anxieties, ones that can generally be ignored and then WHAM! fear is in my face. A good example is driving: I am afraid of driving in a city environment, like where there is a lot of traffic. I am afraid of driving in places that I do not know, or even places I do know but I am unsure where exactly I am going. I need a map of where I am headed in my head, or I get panicky, almost sick over it. I don’t know why. It’s not like I am a bad driver or that I have ever been in an accident. It’s illogical. I know it’s illogical, yet I still have to fight these overwhelming feelings.
But I am realizing that fear is holding me back; preventing me from living the life I want to live. Keeping me from finding my dreams and having adventures. And so I am taking steps to beat the fear, one step at a time. I am working on it. And I am proud of myself, cuz IT.IS.SCARY….
