I Want To Be Fearless.

fear-617131_960_720

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!

    You are not alone 🙂

    I used to have experience paralyzing fear whenever I was on stage. Now I don’t. I still have stage fright, but it is manageable. What I did was enter a bunch of elocution competitions during my high school years. Twice I went on stage and sang with a group of people.

    I am tackling my fear of the unknown through solo travels. It gives me a lot of confidence when I manage my end to end experience of the travel, making plans, navigating the unknown and taking care of myself. I leave you with this quote which I found helpful:

    “You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.”

    Step out on faith. I still have fear. Fear is the unknown which we all rather know than the unknown. Guess what I stepped out on faith becoming a new blogger. Fear will cripple us. one day whatever you want to do just do it and see how it feels ☺☺☺
