Pingback: Dealing with the fear of the Known! « Learning from Dogs
Today I have realized that I have been living in fear. I have had overcame fears programmed by my mother.
Now I have children (two boys) and if I transfer my fears to them it will be bad.
Fears cost me my life.
When I came to the point where I have had same thoughts about fear as you explained in your article:
A simple, and slightly flipant answer would be,
“Develop a different relationship with it.”
What I’m saying is that when we are facing the known, and I’m assuming that it’s something unpleasant, our choices are limited. It’s going to happen, so the only thing we can do is change the way we view it.
This brings us back full circle to developing a different relationship with it.
I’m afraid of facing my fear and it drives me crazy.
I need to change my perception and chain reactions that bring me to the point where I don’t have time for
” If more of us got used to coming out of the mind before making an important decision, and simply sat with the question for a while, the answer would probably present itself.”
The worse thing I have realized about life in fear is loss of time and space. The loss of the today.
A very long time has passed since you wrote this and I do apologise for the huge delay. Lot’s have been going on for me which I won’t bore you with but I am curious to know how things are for you now? If you feel like replying to this, I promise I will reply promptly this time!
