The title says it all. I want to be able to do things without my fear getting in the way. Having pretty bad anxiety doesn’t help either. I want to be able to go for my dreams without the fear of failing. I am tired of having fear rule my life.
Fear and anxiety seem to go hand in hand with each other. I always find myself avoiding situations because I don’t want to deal with the uncomfortable feelings that come with those emotions. For example, I wanted to be a doctor but I was so afraid that I wouldn’t do well in school and never get into medical school that I didn’t even try. Who knows, maybe I would be in medical school at this very moment. It’s not too late to go back but it is daunting to realize I let fear determine my career choice.
It’s frustrating to be fearless. I mean of course we want some fear, like I want to know when something is a terrible idea. I just feel like my fear is unreasonably exaggerated and interferes with my life. I want to be able to do the things I dream of without talking myself out of it before I even take the first step forward.
My first goal is to forget about letting people down with my failures. I am allowed to mistakes. My second goal is to not let my anxiety talk me out of doing activities. My third goal is to accept that fear is a part of everyday life, but should be in moderation.
I’m curious if others struggle with this as much as me. It would be nice to know I’m not alone!
