Usually people picture feeling afraid as holding them back. And this is true. When you’re afraid, you avoid going for things because it creates an uncomfortable feeling inside of you. We always tend to lean to the easy and comfortable feelings because it makes our life easier.
But have you ever considered feeling afraid as a way to get you to do things you avoided and making you feel much better than you already did. Feeling afraid creates motivation and aspiration. Feeling afraid all time makes me fed up and motivates me to fight this fear. I always search for ways to overcome my fears and feel uncomfortable for the hope of feeling much better afterwards. Feeling afraid increases my self-confidence.
It’s OK to be afraid; it’s normal, but hiding those fears and running away from them is not OK. Facing fear gets you to whole different level you never knew existed.
