Face your Fears

Have you ever come to think of going face to face with the thing you really don’t want to do? Have you ever experienced feeling weak or helpless in some things you encounter? Every human being has a thing called fear. It is the unexplainable feeling of not having the strength or even guts to do something … the things you would never dare to try. Think of it, however. The only thing you can do about your fear is facing it. If you have the weakness towards something, never go away from it… or turn your back on it…. for it will surely cross your path again sooner or later. Many people would surely give something up if they feel it is too difficult or hopeless. These individuals never realize that the longer the time spent in ignoring such thing makes it stronger and even scarier to face when time or consequences make it unavoidable at last.

Let’s take these cases. If you are afraid to love again because of a number of failed relationships, don’t you think someone else deserves the chance to prove his worth? If you are afraid of being rejected, don’t you ever think it is about time to convince yourself that nobody gets accepted at any cost no matter who they are? If you are afraid of death, ask yourself this question: “Who among the billions of human beings lived more than 150?” If you are afraid of ghosts, don’t you think the reason why we are called humans is the fact that we are above any other creations? If you are afraid of speaking in public, can you forgive yourself if you should miss one big opportunity that might change your life just because of a short speech? If you are afraid to trust people around you due to an unpleasant experience, don’t you think it would be unfair to others who always choose to be true to you?

Fear. The word itself could scare you away, but it doesn’t mean it is stronger than anybody’s will to overcome it. Face it, go over it… after all, it is just a four-letter word full of misconceptions; deceiving, dreaded but capable of being won over!
