The past few weeks have been about me moving to another state, doing something that I have wanted to do for the longest time but that I must admit I was a bit afraid to do. It is because of this that I’m inspired to write about the importance of facing your fears.
We all have fears of some sort. Fear is such an innate feeling and there is a reason why we inherited fear and it got passed on from generation to generation. Fear was meant to prepare us for a situation that may put us at harm and so the body gets ready to deal with the situation. However, it seems like nowadays many of us have fears about things that are not putting us in danger. Having fear of the unknown is quite normal. Anything that isn’t familiar to us will normally make us feel uncomfortable. Despite this it is important to face your fears and I will explain why in this post.
Facing your fears will help you grow. When you fear something because it is unknown territory and because of this you run away from it, you’re actually shrinking as a person spiritually, mentally and emotionally. You don’t grow always doing what is familiar to you. You grow through change. Doing the things you want and need to do despite the fear will help you see your strengths and what you’re really made up of. How are you going to know what you’re really capable of doing if you don’t face your fears?!
Facing your fears helps expand you in every way. What do I mean with this? I mean that you start to see all the possibilities in your life. You allow yourself to know all that is out there and this will make you see life in a whole different light. Since it is our perspective that shapes us, your perspective of the world will change as a result of you facing your fears. This then will change the reality of your life.
Facing your fears helps build your courage muscles. When you face your fears, you start to realize that what you feared wasn’t so scary after all and you build the courage to do more things that may feel scary to you. Now that is powerful!
Facing your fears is important for your overall well-being. You simply can’t afford to live on fear and what you should fear the most is continuing to live a life that you are not happy with just because you fear taking that step. I would like to encourage you with this post to start facing any fear that you may have.
