Throughout our lives, there is one, consistent feeling that will always be present - and that is fear. In every journey we embark on we are always scared.
We fear rejection and to reject.
We feel the fear of telling a teammate You Need To Do Better or admitting that you need to be better.
The fear of failure.
The fear of being different.
The fear of the uncertainties ahead.
Yes, we are all well aware that "Fear" is always there but there is something else that I have learned.
I learned that the absence of fear is not bravery. The absence of fear means you are not taking risks. All that you are doing is stand still and let everything pass you by.
Thus, fear is necessary in life and that a journey cannot exist without fear.
So, embrace fear. Take it by its hands and walk along. Then overcome it and move on.
By the end of a chapter, as you prepare to embark on a new one, you will realise that you are a much better person then before.
When I finally realised all these (and this was very very recent), I felt liberated.
Because now I know that on the other side of my "fear"is a better me and I am on a journey to a better self.
