Fear is essential to our survival.
Fear gives us energy.
Fear keeps us alive.
Fear is just the opposite of love.
What you fear is what you can work on, from childhood trauma to phobias counsellors and therapists do wonders.
How you acknowledge your fear and how you reparent yourself is also what you can work on, therapists and coaches are great teachers.
How you choose relentlessly to see the positive outcome, to learn from your experience and to trust yourself is how you start creating a life that suits you.
Like all emotions fear is an indicator, being able to recognize and analyse it is what makes you a great strongly centred human being.
