Face Your Fears

I have always been afraid.

Afraid of bridges…….

Afraid of spiders…….

Afraid of large crowds……

Afraid of failure…….

Afraid of death…….

Afraid of public speaking…..

Fear has dictated so many decisions I have made in my life! In the last year my life has changed drastically. The changes were not my choice and not necessarily positive. As I have stated in previous blogs my physical health has declined. When I say declined, I mean I am physically unable to do many things. I won’t go into my depression and all that because I have already dwelled on that in many blog posts. 

This post is positive…..turning a negative into a positive. I decided to really put an effort into my essential oil business. This scared me so much. In order to do this I had to face my social anxiety head on! 

Guess what?! When we face our fear of failure out of the equation, great things can and will happen! I still suffer with social anxiety but with the help of my oils and a little determination, I get through it. What’s the worse that can happen? I could get a no but is that the worse? No the worse would be a huge spider on my pillow! I can handle people and I know the only time I fail is when I don’t try! Who would have thought such a negative experience could turn me into a better person! I have my goals and I will not let my fears stand in my way (unless there are spiders).

  1. I’m sorry to hear that you are struggling, but I admire your determination to transcend it and make your life the way you want it. People dismiss how hard it is to overcome physical and emotional barriers, but we are courageous and strong. That strength gives us motivation to rise up from the ashes after being knocked down. I wish you success in your journey!
