I wonder sometimes about fear. I watch people who show courage–what I don’t know is, do they also have fear? An author says “Being driven by fear is like dying inside.” (Sharon Salzberg). So maybe those who are courageous are living fully because they have conquered their fear and are no longer driven by it. This makes sense to me. So the important thing in our lives is not so much to lack fear, but to have the ability to overcome it so that we may live a full life. I am curious as to how this plays in relation to our own self-worth and self-confidence. When we lack these, are we being driven by fear? Are we allowing fear to rule our life and, therefore, to be a small death every day?
I would love you, the reader, to add your thoughts…
Life is Amazing! Live Well.
