Letting go of fear. We all have had someone tell us that if you could just let go of fear everything will be okay. Which immediately results in us feeling even more fearful and our anxiety levels increase ten fold. Seriously — think about it it makes no logical sense and it makes complete sense all in one sentence.
For many of us fear is comfortable. It is an old friend that we seem to work well with. Or that is what we tell ourselves. Change is never really easy — trust me I know only too well. I wanted everything to stay the same. Spirit made me so completely uncomfortable that I had to change and I did so dramatically. Not the first person to come to this realization, and won’t be the last.
Personal Experience Letting Go of Fear
Two years ago I gave up selling Real Estate, moved to Rochester NY, soon after that I got married, we bought a house, I have been volunteering and spending time connecting with myself. I was so afraid of letting that REALTOR title go that I spent more time doing something that was draining me until I could no longer take it.
Letting go of fear meant that I had to make some dramatic changes in my life. As a result, I am free now and exploring options including writing and teaching. Where I will end up I no longer control, I accept things as they flow in and out of my life. I am not a super control freak any more.
I am free in ways that I had no idea possible. It can be disconcerting making the changes in your life. I know I have done so. Looking back, I understand why things happened the way they did. There were signs, oh so many signs that I shrugged off. Spirit never gave up on me and I am grateful for that.
Do yourself a favor if you sense you need to make significant changes and you are afraid. Go for it, make them and don’t let fear stop you. Remember that you do not have to have all the answers. You will be grateful you did take that leap of faith.
