How to let go of the fear.
This has to be one of the most challenging circumstances we face every day. Accepting that things just are what they are. That sometimes things just don’t go your way. Accepting in general, that’s not easy. But when you stop resisting and trying to control, you realize that things always have a way of working out. Maybe not as you had planned but they always work out. Along with letting go of the control you release the emotions of fear; stress and anxiety that come along with harboring those feelings.
What happens to us when we experience a painful situation?
We shut down. There’s a part of us whether it be conscious or subconscious that puts up a wall and blocks ourselves from feeling that pain again. We avoid anything that we believe caused our pain and want to run far away from it. It’s our self-preservation, trying to protect us from repeating the past mistakes. But it can also prevent us from experiencing life to the fullest. We need to face those fears head on and conquer them. To learn to live fearlessly.
Avoiding our feelings and running from them are not getting over them. It’s just setting it aside and blocking it out. Until one day, they all come rushing back in and hit you like a ton of bricks. Just the thought of going back and facing those painful experiences can be tortuous. But if you don’t, you’ll notice that the past will keep repeating itself. Maybe not in the same form but you will keep attracting similar situations. Until you can learn to deal with it, overcome it, release it, and move forward. When you can conquer that, consider yourself fearless!
