Fear holds us back from the Life we could be enjoying!
Over all these years of talking with parents, I've noticed that the most common fears fall into these categories:
☞ Fear about Dealing with Others
☞ Fears about Yourself and your capapbilities
☞ Fears about Your Child and their choices and/or capabilities
Sometimes our fears stem from a lack of knowledge. So once we educate ourselves on these topics, the fear can dissipate. It may have been way off base - but how would you know if you hadn't explored it more?
That's the problem with fear. We may wring our hands and feel panicky, but that doesn't really solve anything. As humans, we want to avoid discomfort. We'll sometimes go to great lengths to avoid what's bothering or frightening us. We push it out of our minds, or try to stay superficial with it... only to have it pop up another time in some other scenario in our life.
The only way to conquer a fear is to shine the flashlight ON the it. Break it apart. See what's rational and what isn't. See what's within our power to change and what isn't. When we work through these details, we can finally come out on the other side.
