Releasing fear, we expand.

We all carry fear to some degree. Fear about our adequacy and worth, fear for and about those we love, fear about lost opportunities, fear of taking a chance or failing, fear of loss, fear about not being free, fear about being vulnerable—we find plenty to be afraid of.

We wear our fear like armor, and in this way it limits us more than any outside circumstances. Our fear keeps us stuck in unpleasant situations, blocks us from personal growth or success, and prevents us from meaningful connection with others.

Today’s message asks me to be willing to let go of old fears. Releasing their shield will help me be more open to new experiences. My fears teach me where I have the opportunity for personal growth.

How about you? How do you relate to your fears?
