Fear is a Merciless Bastard

Love conquers fear. Simple, straightforward and to the point…loving who we are beats the living shit out of fear every single time. Why this is important is because it is fear—about not being loved, not saying the right thing, not being the right person—that stops us from being honest with people…with ourselves. Fear is a merciless bastard because it makes us do the exact opposite of what we know we should. Fear drives us to pretend to be someone else, say things we know are untrue, act in insincere ways and hide who we really are. Fear makes us tell ourselves that we’re not good enough and that we don’t deserve to be loved just for being ourselves.…but that is wrong; really, really wrong….and ultimately destructive.

First and foremost, self-love allows us to be honest with ourselves and truly accept that some people will not like or love us for who we are…and we can never change that fact…and that’s really OK because once we give in to fear and hide our true selves, for damn sure we won’t like or love the results. Love who you are, accept who you are, know you can change yourself if you want and need to…banish fear…

Believe. Go. Do.
