Greeting Fear

A lot of us hold fear around our decisions, relationships, activities, even our identities. I think it's normal, certainly not something to feel shame about or to hide from.
But instead of running from our fears or denying their existence, what if we step back, look honestly and kindly at them and ask "What am I afraid of in this?" "Why am I afraid in this?" "What does my fear tell me about myself?". Invite that answer in for a cup of tea. Sit down with this old friend and say "Hello Fear, Hello Story I Tell, Hello Limiting Core Belief, it's nice of you to stick around for so long. Where else do you show up in my life? Now, is it actually you sticking around or is it that I am holding on to you?".
