FEAR, FRIEND OR FOE?

FEAR is just a feeling, coming from a thought or situation. Fear is meant to protect you from real threats in your surroundings.  However, fear can cause you to run away and retreat back into your comfort zone, often preventing you from acting on opportunities in your life.

The origin of your fear is difficult to identify. The presenting “negative” situation usually triggers the same feelings that are part of your past; therefore, intensifying or building on your perspective of what is going on now.

FEAR IS CUMULATIVE. THE ORIGIN OF YOUR FEAR IS DIFFICULT TO IDENTIFY. AS A RESULT YOU MIGHT FEEL OVERWHELMED, RESENTFUL, ANGRY, SAD, THREATENED, HELPLESS, WORTHLESS, REJECTED, ETC.  WITH EFFECTIVE TOOLS AND PRACTICE, YOU CAN LEARN TO RECOGNIZE, MANAGE AND MOVE THROUGH THE FEAR AND THE FEELINGS. IGNORING AND DENYING THEM WILL NOT GET YOU TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THEM.

Right from the first time I talked to Wendy, she told me that the anxiety in the pit of my stomach was fear. I really got that fear is just a feeling that I can manage. Once I could put that fear in its place, it felt like a huge weight was lifted. That horrible feeling didn’t have to consume me anymore. I don’t know how to thank you enough, Wendy. -Sarah S.
