Fear is any belief that keeps you from living out your true self.
Fear’s job is to keep you in your comfort zone and stop you from taking any risk where you could experience a negative result. The problem with letting fear make your decisions, is that you may never experience living large and outside of the box. Fear keeps you from living passionately, discovering new interests, opening up to love, and to growing confidence in yourself and your decisions. Fear keeps everything the same. Fear is the comfort zone where everything is predicable…and always the same.
Fear keeps you safe. But how satisfying is safe?
Fear is based on
Attacks on self-esteem
