I realized this morning that fear is guiding my life and dictating my actions. I really don’t want that to be my guiding light. I have no plan on how to make that happen, and my racing heart and fever blisters inside my mouth and all over my lips are physical indications that something MUST change.
I need to get clear of the intense fears and settle into a routine that gives comfort and stability. I hope to work through some of that today.
If you have any suggestions I am open and prepared to listen.
It’s Saturday and I have much to do, so I guess I better get my song in here just in case I don’t get to come back.
Perhaps this will help me and maybe even some others.
Just incase you can click here.

Personally for you I looked for something I can help you with. I found the advice of a professional. Here I will publish them now:
Three steps to overcome any fear.
How to overcome any fear?
Ask yourself the following questions:
1. WHY am I afraid? WHAT am I afraid of?
Make a detailed list. See what comes out as answers.
2. And what of it?
What is the worst possible development? Write again. Make a detailed list, describe any scenarios that your mind and your imagination can come up with.
3. TAKING ACTION.
“Jumping” in fear, looking into the eyes of fear. ACCEPTANCE OF FEAR. LOVING fear as part of us.
Tell yourself – THIS IS ME! I’m just a human…
@lacho59 I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this. It means the world that you took the time to look it up and help me. Forever grateful.
Fear has such a bad rap. (love the song by the way).
Sometimes fear is something we overcome. It makes the end much sweeter because we overcame our fear.
Sometimes fear is measured, we are afraid, BECAUSE we should be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In the novels of Dune Frank Herbert created a group called the Bene Gesserit, they had a saying that “fear is the little-death.”
sometimes fear is bad. sometimes fear is smart, Sometimes fear is vanquished!
I guess I need to figure out what the real problem is and solve that.
then fear will not be the little death!
I guess because dying in little bits sounds horrible.
it really does, living and laughing sound much better!
I pray daily and it greatly helps me to calm any feats. You might find this interesting and perhaps it can help you
Thanks so much for the link. I am going to check it out today.
I read something on Facebook the other day that is so true. It said that worrying solves nothing, which is so true. Just take one day at a time and pray daily.
I understand the theory. I just don’t know how to stop the mind, the nightmares and the crying.
Pray dear friend daily.
Fear is really not good for our health. I, too, have had this problem for a long time. When they diagnosed me with heart problems, the doctors said that one of the causes was also fear.
I am sure that it’s killing me one cell at a time.
Take care of yourself. It is very difficult to change life habits. But sometimes we have to do it and do something for ourselves as well.
I will do the best I can with what I have and thank you so much.
You are always welcome.
Fear can keep us frozen in place. Getting through fear is a skill that anyone can learn.
The problem is that most people cling to their fears, because they believe it’s a part of who they are.
If you aren’t ready to face your fears, you probably won’t transcend them.
And there’s nothing wrong in that. Everything happens in its own time.
Well something needs to change. I can’t keep crying until my eyes are swollen shut without really understanding why I am crying. It all seems like a bit of everything.
