Fear of Flying.
Fear, just the word is scary for some of us. I know many people who are afraid, not just, AFRAID of something you need to afraid of, but AFRAID of everything. “Fearfulness” is a paralyzing, drug swallowed daily, and I believe one of conditioning.
Right now I am caring for someone who is fearful of many things, I never realized how debilitating that can be until living with it first hand.
What I find most interesting is who or what they trust, to me the very person(s), situations and things that they do trust can harm them the most.
Baby steps into the unknown are the only way to start to thaw out the frozen beliefs, and someone who is willing to encourage them to discover on their own, that there is nothing to fear but fear itself.
Trust and fearlessness are an emotional conditioning that we must nourish for ourselves to navigate this life that is filled with unknowns. Otherwise, you live an unlived life locked up in the convoluted mind.
Mantra: I must face my fears before I can be anything else. Today I walk towards one little dread, I know I can manage and trust MYSELF more.
“Most of us have two lives: the life we live, and the unlived life within us.” ~Steven Pressfield
