Sometimes fear itself can be liberating. There is nothing wrong in feeling on the edge and being afraid of falling into the abyss.
The idea of overcoming fear itself produces fear. The more you want to control how you feel and confront fear, you would be literally be swept off by dread.
Feel free to experience fear. You are human.
Fear makes you aware of your limitations as a person. It tells you to listen to your gut instincts.
You know better what is good for you. Fear is a sign that something is off the radar. It tells you to be more cautious.
Fear in itself is the key to overcoming it. Sounds funny right ? Fear exists even when you lie to yourself that you’re courageous.
You could probably tone it down a bit.
My favourite dialogue from Lion King is
“I am only brave when I have to be. Being brave doesn’t mean you go looking for trouble.”
I totally agree with that. Fear is important in reality. Being fearless is overrated. Be afraid and learn what that sensation is trying to tell you.
Many a time your fear makes you fall in alignment with your conscience lest you become imbalanced. If you feel there is an unreasonable amount of fear creeping up inside you in a situation, it means your intuition is bonking you on your head saying “Hey, don’t go in that direction, it’s dangerous.”
