Think about how true this acronym is.

I have carried so much fear in my life although, not for the reasons you may think.

One of my greatest fears has been that I’ve had to pretend to be someone else for so long that I don’t know who I am really as an individual. While that may be true to a certain degree (as I’ve been blogging about not knowing what it is I may like or want now) I have to regain the confidence to remember that I do know my heart. One of the greatest struggles I’ve had this past decade in doing what I’ve done, is trying to stay true to myself in the midst of it all. Often times though, I have been commended for doing just that, so I must not forget or let the uncertainty of what life may bring next rattle me so much. Let us remember that fear is not from God.

It is in the imagination where fear makes its easiest bed.

Let’s flip this acronym around to something I like better…

E xplore it

Have you ever read, “Face the Fear and Do It Anyways?”
It’s a great book that I recommend and will re-read again soon I think.

Fear Not

Lately (in light of recent circumstances resurrecting so much of my past) friends and former colleagues tell me I have nothing more to fear – that there is nothing that can hurt me here. I take the greatest amount of comfort in that imaginable. What is meant is that they will never purposely bring me harm. I am protected, I am safe, and they will not become the perpetrators of my past. Those words bring so much relief and may be the sweetest any person could ever tell me (especially a man) and I am so grateful for the comfort they bring, and the honesty and ease with whom they come from.

Finally my friends…

fears - past, present, future

“I must remember this!”

    there’s another acronym for FEAR that I got from a friend of mine a very long time ago, but that I never will forget.

    F – forgetting
    E – everything’s
    A – all
    R – right

      Thanks so much Andy and I appreciate your visit. My apologies, as I obviously don’t have the “like” button enabled. I’ll be redoing these sights and splitting up my photography and writing very soon, so perhaps then. I appreciate you leaving the comment and have a great week!

    […] a natural defense mechanism it can make you judge others like those of your past. That’s what fear does though. It robs us of our peace and trust until we doubt all that is good. Don’t let […]
