We often shy away from that which frightens us. It’s natural to want safety, security, and comfort. But in doing so we often forget the link between our fear and our passion. To pursue a cherished goal and fail can be perceived as a worse outcome than not trying at all. After all if we don’t put ourselves out there than we never know if we’re good enough. But are we really safe? Are we really living our lives? What frightens us also illuminates what matters most. Learning to recognize and lean into our deepest fears will always propel us toward our dreams.
