This is my very first article on my blog. My mind has been railing from one topic to another for the last couple of days on what should I be writing on that will get me that dot on that little bell icon in the top right hand corner of the screen in WordPress. Yes it is true, that little red dot on the bell is quite an inspiration for not all but the majority of us to some extent. It serves as a booster that someone, out there can relate to us and vice versa. Said that I wanted to write my first write-up on fear. This one word exists in everyone’s life. For some the degree of this word might be way higher and for the others this word will motivate them to change something in their life, to try out something new, to excel and not to fall back. For me this words means at times to be careful, danger ahead, watch your back, take one step at a time, above all trust your instinct.
We all have fears. But what exactly is a fear. Is it like a shadow that follows us everywhere and when you turn around changes its direction? Or is it like that knot in our heart that when it happens, we can’t even drink a sip of water?
For me fear is a feeling. It is a feeling, a warning that I will get hurt physically, emotionally and mentally if I didn’t do my best whether at work, home, among relationships.
Writing this article made me realize that I cannot control the outside world. I cannot control how people react, I cannot control other people’s anger or annoyance towards me or my values. Said that I should not even bother explaining myself to them, I am what I am. My weaknesses could serve as my strengths at times. It is not for anyone to decide how to treat me. It is for me to decide who I am and where I want to go.
With that will, fear can be tamed. Can be directed. Can be controlled.
We do not lie in the hands of fear. Fear is within us. We are the one who can control it, channel it out and can ultimately conquer it.
