All of us have been afraid at times so fear is not a stranger. It may have prevented us from doing something that wasn’t in our best interest but, on the other hand, it may also have stopped us from experiencing something wonderful. The trick is to know which is which. We’ve all felt the fear that makes our heart beat a little faster and presses our “fight or flight” button, usually before doing something that makes us nervous, or meeting someone that we’re unsure of. However, trust that the fear is saying it’s okay to be a bit afraid as it will keep you alert and on your toes, but NEVER let it stop you from doing something that may be the greatest experience of your life, or meeting someone who could prove to be the key to your future happiness.
