Not letting fear overcome you!

 
 
 
 I have spoke briefly about not letting others intimidate your dreams, not letting fear keep you from accomplishing anything, and not letting what other people say make your journey harder to bear. I have had a lot of friends lately who are down about life and are tired of criticism. I wish I could tell them that judgment will end and that one morning they will wake up and feel completely better, but if that were true then life would not truly be a journey. You are not intended to ever be done working on yourself and there are always going to be things that you wish you could change and things you dislike about your life. There comes a time when you stop asking yourself, "When will this pain end?" and start saying, "Today is going to be a good day. " The difference between the two I feel is that one is in the perspective of a victim and the other is that of a victor. Nana once said, "Every woman needs a time when they stop being a victim and start becoming a survivor." I completely agree with that statement. Our minds are our worst enemy at times. So many times in my life I have said I'm so down, I can't get back up, I'm too broken. Then you see your head and it's still up, your still standing on your two feet, and your body is luckily still completely assembled. It's so easy to get caught up in what everyone else says, and even more in how you feel on the inside, but if you let it control your everyday, I think that is such a waste of life. I wasted so much time being mad about what was in the rear view mirror. I don't want anyone else to feel the way I felt and I certainly don't want to see friends stuck there. There is a wonderful quote I love that goes, "Strong is what you get when you run out of weak." I think one of the greatest times in my life was when I was 13 and I was so suicidal and was in and out of therapists being diagnosed with this and that, taking Zoloft, and was so broken on the inside. I remember that day so well because I got saved that day, but because I was so down it only took me a little while to realize that I had so much further to climb with God, he grabbed me by the hand and I was so happy to start feeling so much better. I read my Bible about 5 times and was just so thirsty for a relationship with God. It was then I realized that I didn't need to keep torturing myself over the sadness with my earthly father because I had a father who loved me so much more and would never leave my side. I'm so thankful for that relationship I started that day because it had so much to do with shaping me into the woman I am today. I've still had mistakes, I have turned my back and ran from him at times because of guilt or fear, but I always come back because I always get reminded of my love to praise. I could be sitting alone and just have to sing at the top of my lungs and I always know that's God saying, "Come back!" You have to hit rock bottom for you to be truly thankful for what you have sometimes. Now about what others have to say, don't you have enough to worry about? You have much more to do with your day then to be completely wrapped around how others perceive you. Judgment is hard to bear no matter where it is coming from, but what you must realize is that it does not matter whatsoever. Friends will give you amazing positive feedback and they will let you know if they have something nice to say, but that is not judgment. I don't know about you but other than those kind words, I don't want to listen to any of the negative. There is nothing making you have to listen to what others say, they have freedom of speech just as you do, and no one is holding a gun to your head saying you have to agree with every word. It always goes back to Eleanor Roosevelt, "No one can make you feel inferior without your own consent." You never truly have to feel down about it at all. She was the first lady of Franklin Roosevelt who was inaugurated at the end of one of the biggest times of crisis our country has ever had to face, the Depression. If she could put a smile on at that time, I certainly feel that we can do it today.

Sometimes, fear plays a quite good role to become successful, because it drags out the hidden potential from inside of individuals. But overwhelming of any kind of fear can make big difference between success, and you like an overdose of any medicine can harm the patient's health.
