Your fear is an incredible informant and a terrible leader.
If your fear points out stuff worth noticing, then it’s super helpful. Because you need to know when you’re in danger.
But if you obey your fear and believe that you’re in danger every time you’re afraid or work harder every time you get scared that your not measuring up, then fear will become your survival strategy.
And because you’ve put it in charge, it will do the only responsible thing it can do. Grow bigger. And your life will be taken over by it because you asked it to take over.
But if instead, you listen closely to what fear has to say and make your own decisions.
Then the fear you have will feel valued because you’re paying attention to it and only get loud when it’s needed. Because it knows that you’re taking care of your life, but if it needs to speak its truth you’ll listen.
