Fear is a natural protective mechanism that is designed to conserve the amount of physical energy you would expend to an event or circumstance.
If you are experiencing a lot of fear, it means that your body knows that it does not want to expend resources to a particular event.
You have three choices when you encounter fear:
- Clarify the source of the fear, assess whether you consciously want to extend yourself to the circumstance.
- Remove yourself from the circumstance.
Treat your fear like it’s the most thorough form of love you can have for yourself. Trust that what you are communicating to yourself has context and purpose, and it is the most powerful method through which you are trying to obtain clarity about yourself and your motivations.
